The Tapered Roller Bearing had its origin as far back as 1895 when H. H. Timken of America first designed and manufactured the tapered roller bearing for application to the wheel hubs of horse drawn waggons and carriages. That the original design was correct has been substantially proven by the fact that despite continued research we have not been able to depart fundamentally from the basic principles governing the original conception of a tapered roller bearing. In his paper, the late Mr. Snedden (British Timken Ltd.) outlined these basic principles and then went on to discuss the application of tapered roller bearings to rolling mill roll necks, and this is the section of his paper that we reproduce below.
