Vintage TV Antenna Parts?

For the purists out there - someone might know - where to find a replacement cog wheel - pictured below.

The rest of the Antenna is fine - but this little part suffered a blow from a branch - and it looks like over the years the plastic has torqued and twisted in the wind....

Any ideas - and not interested in "just trash it" and get an updated one.

We have a line on another Antenna but we have sold our trailer and hoping to find the part for the New Owner and re-install it before they pick it up.

As you can see half the wheel has broken off. I did find a 1/4 of it on the driveway a couple of days after the storm -but that does not help me.

With the Antenna out of comission the vent will not open - so we have removed the antenna carefully so that we can replace it once we find the part.

Thanks for any help or direction you can give.

Is your antenna a skyliner made by Braund? If so, here's a link:

Coastalview - you are truly my hero -

The skyview it the one and that is most definitely the part I need - now off to order it and keep my fingers crossed.

Thanks!

Glad to help you find the part. I just so happen to order the same replacement part for my skyliner 30 minutes ago. Jeff

Will get mine (or should I say the new owners) part ordered. We just like the GT to leave with all parts working! - and although it was missing a crank handle - the little wrench we had worked perfect. But the terrible storm we had at the beginning of December rendered the antenna non operable - so we had to find out why.

Good day to pick yesterday - still had no snow -but today there is 8 inches on top of the GT now!

It was funny too - last year at Paradise park in the back where there are lots of vintage airstreams being used as storage units (shame but true) there was a pile of these antennas in a scrap from the big storms that year. I am sure there were lots of parts we could have pillaged and kept for a windy day Like Dec 5, 2006

Thanks again!
