I'm doing a translation for a manufacturer of transmissions and they keep talking about a "Steuerad" (literally steering wheel)
but they don't mean the steering wheel but a gear wheel in the transmission.

Has anyone got any idea what this particular gear wheel could be called in English? 
Is it a timing gear? And what the hell is that anyway?
 
Maybe they are not talking about the transmission but the gearwheels to which the timing belt is attached.. does that make sense?

Guess I can always ask the client, just don't want to look too stupid.

ok, too late.

No, they don't mean differential because that is called a Differenzialgetriebe in German.

The word Steuer  also means control, which is what made me think of timing.
But I always associated timing with belts rather than gears.
However, they must mean a certain gearwheel, hence the word Rad tacked on the end

Steuerrad

btw, thanks !!  (gotta down tools and go out for dinner now - it's a tough life).

What kind of a transmission?  Could be a planetary gear - would be similar to differential function if steering is involved (lets wheels travel at different speeds while steering).   

Could be anything in a planetary gearbox: sun gear, planet gear, ring gear...

Check this out, or better yet seek out the German equivalent.

Planetary gear looks sort of like a steering wheel:

I would just call around to people in the neighborhood that reupholster furniture and tell them the dimensions you need. They'll have the foam and maybe you can pick the fabric or take them some. 

 
Thanks,I'll look into that tomorrow.I found a bunch of possibilities under "cot mattress" but I'd still have to do something about the back cushion.

I found a couple leads under "day bed cushion" but haven't heard back yet. 

I couldn't measure the sofa but I  (duh {#Doh}) measured the old cushions.

I need 3 each of  25x15 and 25 x 30 or some combo or single mattress that would work(inches,not feet,it's not a gift for Manbirds imaginary 50 foot girlfriend)

Where can I get some cheap cushions for something like this? (just a pic I found on E-Bay,but my camera is downstairs and I'm not)

 I don't have the exact dimensions as it's standing on end in a corner I can't get to right now.All of  Amazon's replacement cushions were crazy expensive.All I need is a piece of foam or some corncobs covered in some cheap fabric.

Not sure if this would work better as a journal entry or what, but here goes.

A coworker of mine has designed a fantastic one-handed gaming controller for people who are missing limbs.  He's looking into patenting/producing the thing within the year, but is having a hard time coming up with a name for the controller and/or the "brand". 

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
