With three boxes apart, I'm getting plenty of evidence of wear and failures, and can now see wht James meant by 'scooped'. The gear dog teeth tend to get undercut rather than rounded/blunted, (though that happens too) because the teeth of the slider are not as tall as than those on the gear. The slider teeth therefore do round over. So, while you can't see the point from the top in the pic, you can see that the meat of the tooth below the top has been 'eroded' by the slider tooth. Innnterrresting!
