    1. I don’t know of anywhere to find that particular part, but I’ve had some luck oiling stuck parts, then using a hair dryer to heat up the area, then let it cool again, oiling and repeating the process a few times. It makes the metal expand and shrink back just a little bit, which can help oil get between stuck parts. If not, ebay or etsy might have the part you need.
