The article "Gear Tip Chamfer and Gear Noise; Surface Measurement of Spiral Bevel Gear Teeth" appeared in the July/August 1993 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
Could the tip chamfer that manufacturing people usually use on the tips of gear teeth be the cause of vibration in the gear set? The set in question is spur, of 2.25 DP, with 20 degrees pressure angle. The pinion has 14 teeth and the mating gear, 63 teeth. The pinion turns at 535 rpm maximum. Could a chamfer a little over 1/64" cause a vibration problem?
