Abstract : A speed reducer that includes two meshed gear members having different numbers of teeth thereon to provide a differential movement that is small relative to the motion of the input member. One of the geared members is a wobble plate engaged by a presser member carried by the input shaft. As the input shaft rotates, the presser member travels around the wobble plate near its outer peripheral edge, thereby forcing successive areas of the plate to move toward the other gear member. Cam action of the teeth on the two gear members produces the beforementioned differential motion. (Author)
