I need some serious advice on finding a missing part for my C&P New Style 10X15. I am missing the double saddle that holds the rollers in place just on the left side. Not only is the saddle missing, the rod and spring are missing too. I’ve emailed just about every resource I can find online to no avail. I think I will have to get one made, but I have no idea how to explain to a machinist what I need. I have the saddle for the right side, but I know that the saddle on the left is different.
Does is just mirror the saddle on the right? Is the only difference between it and the one on the right the lifting pin? Seriously any kind of advice is welcomed. I feel I’ve reached a dead end here.
Haha, I wondered if that was you. I am probably going to part out a 10×15 OS C&P this summer. I’m fairly sure that most parts on the OS and the NS will interchange. Here is one picture of the left side saddle. Please contact me directly to discuss this further if you wish.
some of the guys over at Briar Press think I should be able to use a right-sided saddle on the left as long as I have the pin facing outward. I’m going to buy a saddle I found in hopes it’s the right size. Thank you everyone for your help!
