Good idea , Jerry - but this is pretty badly fractured and very weak. It started as just a crack and is now enlarged. I can epoxy it into place, but it would make removal very difficult if I found a replacement.

I'm hoping someone has a trashed leg with a good part that I can buy. Otherwise, I'll end up replacing the entire leg section. The repair cost is $144 for just a leg section.

I am really surprised at how thin the metal wall is. It is much thinner than the CF leg section.
