It's difficult to take a photo of something a person doesn't have.
We looked into that bracket replacement some 20 years ago.
The cost for the mold and production of a quality part would end up with a retail price of over $ 25.00 each, and only if we purchaed 1000 of them.
Some vintage parts, I am afaraid, will just be history.
Even the cost for the brass screw, which has a "double start thread" is crazy.
Someday, just maybe, something may pop up that would be a reasonable replacement.
