The most common type used for this is a http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bevel_gear" [Broken] set.
Many companies have information on their websites for selecting gears, based on loads, speeds, conditions, etc.
Google "http://www.google.com/search?q=bevel+gear+selection"" returns a lot of options.

Bevel gears are the best options for transmission in such cases where shafts are either perpendicular or inclined at an angle.
