Sprocket lift off

So I know the answer is prolly on here but when setting up the machine I launched one of the smaller 10 tooth sprockets into orbit. I’ve searched for almost 2 months for it or for a replacement for it. I’d really like to at least finish setting it up. Any help or links is welcomed thank you.

P.s: it is the sprocket that attaches to the S hook to be specific.

get a cloaths line pulley from lowes/home depot, they work better anyway.

But doesn’t it need to have teeth for the chain or is it strictly for tension.

the ones hooked to the s-hooks are strictly for controlling the slack of the
chain, tension.

It also works far better to use weights to collect the slack than the bungee
cords, I have a thread about this with pictures of how I used simple PVC pipes
to do this.

Swamprats took one of my pulleys, I found a replacement on eBay (it’s #25 chain), they returned the original pulley a few days later
