      I need to connect a constant speed 20rpm cam shaft to drive another cam shaft at a right angle in a 1:1 ratio. The tourqe thru the connection will ba a max of 500 inlbs. (Shaft are 1inch dia) Any thoughts as to bevel gears vs crossed helical gears (prefere to use a packaged, lube containing gearbox rather than open gears). This is for an industrial machine tool.

      Its normally quite difficult to imagine something without drawings or figures.
      On studying your problem it is OK that a 25 mm. cam shaft is rotating at 20 rpm but "you need to drive other shaft at right angle to it"... This is not clear to me. Can you please send a photograph of the same or even a line diagram will do.
      Thanking you
