    That happened to me about 25 years ago. I feel your pain. If you are not able to find one ( unlikely, but possible ), lock your cross slide, and use the compound for adjustments to the tool in effort to turn a new one. The original was CI, but it really does not need to be. Good luck.

    In your photo I can't read the scale. Measure the left end bushing length, of the two versions one is shorter, 21/32 one is longer 25/32. the right side to the thread ends are basically the same length. I have both, but they both have somewhat chewed up threads.

    I find myself in the same situation. The part seems to have broken because the oiler grub screw above blocked it. I'm looking for the version with the 25/32 long bushing.
    The machine is a small dial SB heavy 10 with metric graduations I recently acquired together with a Van Norman 6.

    Mine has been repaired sometime in the past and I think I may attempt to make a new one. Does anybody have a drawing or know what the threads are? Mine is a large dial.

    Thanks. I will study up. Mine was broken and put back together. It works but not quite right.

    The reason I broke mine was the oil holes didn't line up and I over tightened it and the threads were ruff from the oil screw digging it to the threads. On my replacement I added some shims so the oil holes would line up.

    You do not want the holes to line up.

    Think about the design...the hole in the bushing is in a relief groove, once that bushing is screwed into the saddle it becomes a reservoir.

    If the holes lined up not only would debris be prone to fall straight down onto the screw shaft but the reservoir would be defeated too.

    IMO the *ideal* position for the bushing hole to end up is *somewhere* between the 4 and 8 o'clock positions since debris would tend to wash past the hole but still retain the reservoir function...but that's just me.
