The article "Liebherr - Barber Colman Hob Settings" appeared in the September/October 2015 issue of Gear Technology.

Summary
I would like some instructions for setting the degrees and minutes on a Liebherr or Barber Colman hob. Our machines use a Vernier scale to match the lead angle of the cutter to the part to form straight teeth. There is a dispute on how to do this task, and I wanted insight from another professional.
