Stumbled upon this tonight and wondered if it could possibly work for worn/stripped oscillator gears?  Even if only temporary or for little use...it'd be better than no oscillation at all.

That's an interesting repair technique. No reason why it wouldn't work. I think that the most likely problem with that guy's gear would be possible lack of bonding between the two dissimilar plastics. It might have been better for him to machine down the gear all the way around so that there was an unbroken "ring" of epoxy instead of a "patch" on one side.  Just my two cents worth since I have not tried this. :D
