  • Yep!
  • Have you ever heard of a bevel gear?
  • You mean the gear train where the gears create a 90 degree angle?
  • Do you know anything that uses a bevel gear
  • I think so, let me think for a second
  • I think so, lets take a look and talk about it
  • I think my friend said that an electric garage door uses one, is that true?
  • Is this what you were talking about?
  • Yes, please explain how a bevel gear might be used in this
  • The mechanism uses bevel gears in order to open. The gears allow the door to be rolled up, turned, and opened. Due to the 90-degree angle, the doors use vertical force allowing the doors to go along the ceiling
  • Totally!
  • That is cool!
