    What are the advantages and disadvantages of bevel gears?

    This is what I've already found:

    • possibility to change operation angle
    • must be precisely mounted
    • shafts' bearings will be exposed to significant forces
    • limited gear ratio < 5
    Do you know any other? Especially advantages.
