Well being a bit heavy handed I have just split one of the special shaped studs that lock the brass shoes into place.
Wondering if any one knows if and where spares are available?
I have e mailed ARC tonight but thought i would ask here as well.
Yes I know I could make one but prefer top do other jobs if I can.
I can temporarily rob one from the travelling steady to finish my job but thought i would start the process of trying to find one now.

As you have a lathe can you not find one inside a bit of bar you have in the shed?

LOL! (Clive had said he'd prefer not to have to make it!)

ARC have responded. unfortunately in the negative.
So at some point i will be digging out my 19mm bar stock and constructing a couple.
May as well make two whilst i am at it as there is not a lot of meat on them after the M5 cross drill.
However i have now learnt that they only need nipping up and not tightening.

Can you not just buy a couple of cap head screws or standard set screws for the job? Maybe even threaded rod? Perhaps a pic of this ‘special shaped stud’ might elicit some simple practical suggestions?

If you could use a cap (Allen) head screw it would be high tensile material and much less likely to break again.
