I didn't know before that the angle is a reference to the sharpness of the teeth and not the slant of the teeth. I thought it was the slant.
A lot of people think that. That's how the gears get mixed in some cases. That's why some people talk about the changed PFA effecting end play and axial load. It doesn't. What it effects is where each individual tooth along the height of the tooth contacts the next tooth and transfers the load.
