Appreciating the Spur GearBy Chuck Schultz
When the average civilian hears the word "gear," if they think of mechanical things at all, they envision a big spur gear, perhaps in a clock or with a movie hero trying to escape being crushed between meshing teeth. My first non-toy exposure to gears was an extra credit assignment to draw a cast spur gear in the 7th grade drafting class at Alexander Graham Bell Junior High School in Milwaukee. My hometown was serious about gears in 1964.
