Default GP Slot Machine - Parts?

I aquired a non-working Greatplanes Slot Machine which needs a nylon gear replacement. GP sells replacement blades for this unit but no other parts are available from them. The unit is almost new so it would be a shame to throw it away. I would really appreciate it if someone could point me to a source for this gear, or parts in general.

Thanks

I got this machine from my neighbor who purchased it at a local hobby shop about a year ago. I don't think Tower would send me a new one if it wasn't purchased from them. They refered me to the GP repair and warranty division which won't supply parts either, and they suggested I send it in for repair at $30/hr + parts. Not a viable option as I can buy a new one for $19.95 ! I think this baby is destined for my "save forever" box and someone will eventually throw it out after I crash and burn.

Thanks for your reply.
