Challenge: Where are the good gears (with good teeth)?

Here's a challenge for all the regular visitors here: Where are there good gears to download?  Good gears, with good teeth!

 

It's a subject I see here all too often: users working with downloaded gears with absolute dreck for gear teeth.  I have yet to find one decent configurable gear in Toolbox or 3DContentCentral that has gear teeth with a proper involute tooth shape.

 

Unsuspecting designers without enough knowledge are putting these gears into products with dreadful results.  I personally know of multiple products that have had problems due to this.

 

I don't want to launch into another lecture about how and why this is vital.  I just want to know, are there any good gears out there?
