Looking for a parts supplier for a Van Wirt

A customer called looking for a gear replacement which broke on his Van Wirt. I don't know the model at this time. Any sources for parts?

I had a nimber at one point but last itme i called it was dead, I'll ask my Dad but getting parts may be an issue. If it's the big giant gear it's cast so it's not like you can have it manufactured.

A competent machinist can repair it. If it is cast and the teeth are gone, he can cut the teeth off and press a sleeve over it and lock it with a dutchman and hob the gear back into it. Same with the center, or if its real bad, just make a new one.
