Alternate Sources for Hobby Gears?

I haven't been around for a while, but can't think of a better place to ask...

Do any members here have good recommendations for sources of hobby gears?  (N scale loco replacements / Animation applications)

Mikro Antriebe and Gizmozone have both struck out.
All other search engine hits, either don't have the micro gears I'm looking for, or don't have enough information for me to bite.

I need a 9mm OD, 2mm wide, 18-22 tooth (I believe my math puts it at 21 teeth), 1.5mm bore, 20degree pressure angle, 0.5 or 1mm pitch, worm gear (not the worm; the gear)...  Gizmozone comes close; but not close enough.

Thanks for any help.

Have you checked at NWSL (North West Short Lines)?  I've gotten ger replacements from them in the past.

I hadn't; until now.  It looks like they carry the same (but more limited) selection as Gizmozone.  (Gearboxes, as well)
I'm not actually looking for a direct replacement (old Arnold drive axle); rather, a similar gear, with the specifications above.

Give http://www.sdp-si.com/ a try I dought they will have the bore size you are looking for but they may have the rest of your specks.It would be no big deal to bushing it down to the correst bore size if need be.

You could also try http://www.wmberg.com/ although I am not sure how to order from them.

Hope this helps
