They stopped selling Cog replacements for multiple gear freewheels long ago, so after wearing the chain,
and thus wearing the cog teeth .. you just get a new one .. and new chain..

strong axle freewheel hubs make that part reliable.. I used one of Phil's early steel tube aluminum flange
hubs for decades.. loaded for self contained touring..
the great thing by using a stainless steel tube, was the freewheel threads were in steel.
sealed bearings , and a axle that would not break.
