Looking for a 4850004 Tool Rest Base for the Ryobi Mini-Lathe ML618

A teacher at my school fell in love with this lathe, and the rest base snapped in half while he was turning a sycamore blank. I've attached a picture of it.

I would really appreciate if somebody could help me find a replacement.

Its really a simple (for this particular banjo) job for a local machine sho p. Having one made would also give him a much stronger banjo as the one th at broke was cast and the one they would make would be out of rolled, mild steel.
Just a thought, or two.

Afraid I can't help with a replacement, as all the searches come back as "obsolete, no replacement. Possibly Sears Parts as it says to call 888-837-0262. If it can't be repaired, he can do what some of us have done. Toss the rest and use the motor head as a variable speed buffer. Good luck, it is a nice little lathe.
