are these gears available for sale on the forum ??

Are you referring to the tower's sprockets, or the worm gear in the gearbox?
Right now I believe the choices are: NWSL and Stock Drive Components.
Peter Banks has cast bronze replacements for sale
Tell us more? Cast gears? Is he selling gearboxes, or just a repro worm gear? Who is he?
I got a lot of replacement gears from Weaver way back when but they are all splitting now, so would would be happy to find a better replacement. I normally run them in pairs or 3 or 4 together and have plugs between each unit so they all get good electrical pickup, as if one hits a dead spot in the track it can over stress the other drives that are working.
Says "sold out." Also seems to say tower only - no wheelsets or associated gearboxes.
Those aren't gears, they're sprockets. I've been experimenting with using them, in brass, for over a year and a half. As a matter of fact, I installed them in the new CLW Center Cabs. There are some photos in this Photobucket album that show how I use them. https://app.photobucket.com/u/...57-976a-3cc25f450ef1
