You can use the origin planes and axis to build constrains you don't have always to select faces or edges... Besides in general you can consider the face as a plane and the edge as axis
(although is not true if the face is cylindrical)

If I've understood you correctly, you have 2 parts that rotate in opposite directions at the same speed.
'Gear mate' should mate them to each-other.
