    Adjuster for Universal WA-14

    I bought a bandsaw from a forum member. The adjuster of the top wheel is broken (see photo).
    Is it possible to replace that part? If yes, where can I find one?

    Quick update.

    All plants are thriving, except the cherry tree. It had a fungal infection. Died very quickly. I should have noticed earlier.
