I'm pretty sure that's not what reverse cut means. It has to to with the second angle that alows the teeth to mesh together.

Well I think that a reverse cut would mean the gears angle of cut is reversed from the "normal" angle of cut, hence the reverse rotation when the axle is flipped over. Maybe Will can jump in here with one of his illustrations to give some visual aide here. I believe this is called a helical* (spelling) cut.
