While drilling a large hole in back gear the small gear broke into pieces it looks like it's been broken before and locktited n the shaft
My question is how many teeth should there be and what is the pitch is what cutter would I need to make another

Is it the small gear on the spindle?
I think he does a part exchange on the back gear spindle too.

You can work out the DP from the diameter and tooth count of the gear which was in mesh with it ( at least, and likely other gears). Now knowing the DP, you could measure the centre to centre distance and work out the other gear tooth count from that. All straight forward once you look up the formulae for sorting out gears.

From the tumble reverse info on that link it looks like the mk2 is 20pa and the mk1 is 14.5pa.
European 20pa cutters are rare secondhand and a lot of new Asian sets are module and not DP, but HPC is another source of machined steel generic 20pa gears.

Just measured the small back gear on my Boxford and it is 24 tooth 1.625 inches OD which makes it 16DP

If you make the replacement out of aluminium it will be weaker and act as a sacrificial one for future problems. Then also make it narrower so it cannot be in mesh when the bull wheel is retracted for direct drive. This saves the danger of the back gear left hand lever being engaged when the bull wheel is still engaged with the pulley.
