Steel is a popular choice when creating metal gears due to its high strength and low cost. Brass is also commonly used. Plastic gears are commonly used when cost or weight is a concern, or in cases of where gears may be exposed to dirt or not lubricated for long periods. Plastic gears can also be used as sacrificial gears to avoid damaging other components in case of a malfunction.
