We are an aerospace mfg/eng group, not experienced with gears too much. We have a design (not aerospace) that will require some gears. Wondering if there are some references, charts, etc that would help us decide on a particular tooth cut for a given radius? Basically we have some 1" shafts that will run about 3" apart on center so we would need (2) 3" gears to get both shafts running in unison. I am a little lost from there.. We can do the load calculations but I know there are standards out there.
