Thanks Dimebag. I'm thinking a repair made to a large ratio gearset or a hypoid set where the pinion needs to be replaced might be approachable with protractor on the gear as you mention. Then using proportional changes, maybe the contact pattern can be improved. As long as a testing machine plus software with proportional changes are available, that is.
I remember one experienced gearing guru said that they have, on occasion, "lapped a set into submission".
