Exactly.  I don't know have good they are.  They will be bored on center.  Then, I will see how quiet they are.  I do have a few keyway broaches, so, my plan was to turn them to an appropriate thickness and use a keyway on a bushing to join them.  Worst case, I will get a mod 1 gear cutter and clean them up (I have an indexer).  I hope it doesn't come to that.

each gear cutter only covers a limited number of teeth, but I don't think lathe gears are that critical, there isn't that much force unless you crash and a bit of slack doesn't matter
