Looking for a telescope part

The screw that supports the vane of my scope's spider broke, and I'm hoping that one of you ATM people might have one in your junk box. It's made out of either aluminum or pot metal, has a 1/4-20 thread on one end and a tapped 6-32 hole on the other. It came off of an old Meade Newtonian. I have a source for making one, but am hoping that someone will be willing to sell me / give me one if they have it. A picture of one is below. Contact me via email if you have one of these. Thanks and clear skies!

Hey Scott. Have you looked at the outer end of a hacksaw? The part you need minus the hole is there. Good luck, Randy
