Contrate Gears - Axle crown gear wheel.

Brass was used in the 1960's but then moved to plastic at the end of the 60's and into the 1970s. During this decade the majority of colours were used with yellow and black remaining in the 1980's. For the majority of the 80's and ever since only black (with a few exceptions) contrates have been used. This is because all waste plastic was recycled with a black dye for making common components such as contrate gears, wheel hubs and, of course, underpans.
