Last issue's farewell editorial by our founder and original publisher,
Michael Goldstein, sparked a lot of feedback and comments from
our readers. Here's a sampling of what your fellow subscribers had to say.
When I started Gear Technology more than 35 years ago, my intention was to create something of lasting value for the gear industry. It was a way of giving back
to the industry that had been so good to me and my family.
Over the years, we have traveled extensively throughout the industrialized world, and became increasingly aware of the availability of enormous amounts of technical writing
concerning research, experiments, and
techniques in the gear manufacturing field. New manufacturing methods, materials, and machines were continuously being developed, but the technical information about them was
not readily available to those that could best use it. There was no central source for disseminating this knowledge.
