The pitch, or lead, of a helix is the distance that the table (carrying the workpiece) travels as the work is rotated by the index head through one complete revolution (Figure 2-2). The terms lead and pitch are identical in meaning. Pitch is probably a more proper term; however, lead is more commonly used in the machine shop. 15 16 Chapter 2 GENERATED ON CYLINDRICAL SURFACE GENERATED ON TAPERED SURFACE HELIX SPIRAL Figure 2-1 Basic difference between a helix (left) and a spiral (right). TABLE TRAVEL PER ONE REVOLUTION OF WORK PITCH ONE REVOLUTION OF WORK Figure 2-2 The pitch of a helix.

A spur gear has straight teeth cut parallel with the axis of rotation of the gear body. All the other gear forms—bevel gears, helical gears, worm gears, and worm wheels (Figure 3-7)—are modifications of the spur gear. The general principle, or the principle on which gear teeth are formed, is practically the same in all the forms of gears in use.

The same general principles concerning clamping, support while machining, and chip clearance as covered in jigs apply as well to fixtures. Summary Jigs and fixtures are devices used to locate and hold the work that is to be machined. A jig is a guiding device, and a fixture is a holding device. A jig or fixture can be designed for a particular job. The form to be used depends on the shape and requirements of the workpiece that is to be machined. There are generally two types of jigs used: the clamp jig and the box jig.
