Some plastics can be repaired with glue or cyanoacrylate, but other material like Delrin, or other acetals like polycoethylene or polypropeline will not bond to a canoacylate. They are very chemical resistant and heat is normally used to bond those materials.

Hopefully yours are plastic and you can give the glue a try. It won't be permanent, but it might run long enough to order and receive new gears.

if it's a delrin type material [slippery], then you will need to use Dr.Mike CA glue or similar to get any kind of a bond ...

But the photo shows quite a bit of space across the crack, the gears won't mesh right in that area, and will probably run noisy, the only cure is a new gear ..

I have done a lot of research and don't seem to be able to locate a replacement hoping someone has a source link and I gladly buy a box full thanks.

you may have to try the manufacturers assembly sheet for a part number, and just order one or two... probably the same design so it might crack in a while also ..


or order a duplicate from NWSL or someplace like that ?
