    To help other members to visualise face gears I have attached a photo of the gear faces of a small indexing table I made about fifteen years ago, with an inset showing an enlarged view of some teeth. Advancing by one tooth indexes 3 degrees.

    The differential indexing method of, e.g. 1/360 tooth forward and 1/361 teeth back to advance 10 seconds has I believe been used in advance-retard mechanisms in motor bikes a long time ago, with smaller numbers of teeth, of course.
