Abstract

Two standard gears 10 and 11, made of metal or plastic, are slightly circumferentially misaligned and resiliently held in this position by resilient material 12, such as rubber or plastic, which is molded between the two gears. Gear 10 includes a shoulder 13 which extends through an opening in gear 11. This shoulder is used to mount the antibacklash gear on a shaft, not shown. The resilient material is molded while the gears are slightly misaligned, as shown, and this material resiliently mounts gear 11 on the inner radial surface of gear 10.

Antibacklash Gear

Two standard gears 10 and 11, made of metal or plastic, are slightly circumferentially misaligned and resiliently held in this position by resilient material 12, such as rubber or plastic, which is molded between the two gears. Gear 10 includes a shoulder 13 which extends through an opening in gear 11. This shoulder is used to mount the antibacklash gear on a shaft, not shown. The resilient material is molded while the gears are slightly misaligned, as shown, and this material resiliently mounts gear 11 on the inner radial surface of gear 10.

Figs. 2, 3 and 4 show a bevel gear, a miter gear and a worn-wheel gear constructed as above-described.
