I don t know for sure, but I seriously doubt an electric chain saw would have a plastic sprocket….... ......... Jerry (in Tucson)...... ......... Jerry (in Tucson)

That was the voice of experience Jerry. Here’s what happens when something goes wrong. Note how the teeth are basically gone. Not sure what made it do this exactly but the motor shaft had a metal gear and on the other side of this sprocket is what drives the chain. It appears to have some sort of glass or carbon fiber in it but it is definitely some sort of molded plastic.
