Question Are my gears Standard Cut (LP) or Reverse Cut (HP)?

Don't you just hate it when you find some gears and don't know what they hell they are? Well, determining whether they are Standard or Reverse cut can narrow down what they came from and what else they can be used in.

Below we have a picture comparing the two designs. Note the difference in the direction of the gear tooth spiral. The gears on the left are Standard Cut (low-pinion) and the gears on the right are Reverse Cut (high-pinion).
