    I would think there would be two reasons for a platic gear Frank:
    1/ Reduce the noise.
    2/ Reduce damage in cases like this - the gear strips and that prevents something else more critical/expensive being broken.

    I agree with anthony on that one its like a cotter pin it breaks before the shaft does so you don't end up with some thing to srewed up. the main gears are medal and the other aren't .
