Protuberance in gears - Why doesn't shaving operation finish

  1. May 4, 2015 #1
    Just because shaving doesn't finish the root of a gear, a protuberance is given during hobbing. This, most of the time, leads to an undercut. To avoid this, can shaving operation clear root of the gear as well? Thus, I can avoid protuberance.

    Another question - Can grinding clear root?
