    I have a Edel 665 and broke one of my spreader bar bases. I have not had any luck trying to find a replacement. The spreader bar is 1" diameter round tube which fits into the base and held with a cotter pin. I took the piece to a machine shop and was told it has a 60 degree backsweep but to have a replacement made would be around $180. Any ideas where I could fing something like this?
