Hi Tom, Do you mean the direction of the fly cutter travel should always oppose the direction of rotation of the workpiece ? This is what someone has already told me, however in the manual there are diagrams of a hob traveling from right to left going against the direction of the workpiece and right to left going with the direction of the workpiece depending wether its a left or right hand. It doesnt show it traveling from left to right in any case. I have searched the web for more info on this but found nothing at all on this specific issue.
