Yes, I think that would work. I did clean up and square off the bottoms of the teeth using the bandsaw, so even if the radius was a problem that could be done again. I'd really rather just design the gears to work with the radius.

I'm working on a post to start a thread on this but given holiday activities with family, I'm not sure just when I'll be posting it.

Business Card

When you get a haircut the barber always ask how your doing & what you've been up to. The barbershop I use is all beauticians who found they can make more money just cutting men's hair. When I describe the cnc router to them, they don't have a clue! I made this business card , which is 4 time the size of a regular card, as a Christmas present for the co-owner who cuts my hair. It is Peruvian Walnut 7.5" W x 4.5" H.
