#1
Hello Elsmar people,

I need a little help sourcing a small replacement part (.062 x .625 pin with two retaining clips) for a very old Wilson Mechanical Instrument Co Rockwell tester. I have reached out to the company that seems to habe bought out Wilson and gotten no response yet and am hoping one of you fine folks will "know a guy:cool:". The Model is 4 JR-BB. I will attach a few pictures as well. Before you make fun of my machine just know that is is a reference machine only kept hidden away in the tool room:tg:. Thanks:thanx:

Re: Spare parts HELP!

for small replacement parts like this, I have found it economical to have engineering draw up the part and feed it into (free) software like emachineshop.com. it is easier and quicker than hunting down spare parts for old machines. (I am not affiliated with emachineshop).
The software contains error checking and pricing info built in, so for small or prototypes this works well sometimes.

Many thanks, I am going to let this thread play out just to see what happens, but your option seems like an excellent course of action.

Re: Spare parts HELP!

To have a replacement part made, you'll need to know the type of material required for that part. I suspect that may be fairly important in this application.

excellent suggestion on emachineshop.com. :agree1::agree1::agree1:

Not knowing how rigid or usage or fragile the part is, you could consider going to a shop that have a 3D printer and have it duplicated - there are great strong plastic / metal printers with minimal settings and reduced costs.

Update:

I talked to a company called Sun-Tec corporation and they were able to source the part for an affordable price. Their website is http://www.sunteccorp.com/

Thanks all for contributing.
