I emailed the manufacture and they have been selling for almost a year. According to the testing they have done it is expected a lifetime replacement.

I bought two of these machined brass gears from the UK and they arrived in a week or two.

I have not yet tried installing as both of our tops are still working but if anyone has installed one of these yet, please post your results.
