Unhappy Do any online stores carry hudy lathe parts?

I overtightened, then broke a wrench in, my hudy lathe's tool block grub screws. I can't get the screw out now and need a replacement tool block. I've been googling and searching every store i know of and have been unable to find any store that carries parts! Anyone know of any stores that carry hudy part #101026 Tool Block for the Advanced Comm Lathe?
I don't want to have to buy another lathe...this one is only 3 months old...

hey what about drilling it out and retapping a new screw.. When I uesd to work in a machine shop we had a set of easy out's. You drill a pilot hole and insert the ezout and un screw. It work on a backwards thread principal.. If you need a hand let me know I'll see what i can do

Best thing to do is call RC America and ask them. I dropped mine once and bent something and had to send it to Serpent USA. They were the distrubutor at the time. They repaired it for free. Don't think RC America will do it for free but they can tell you what to do.

Yeah, do not contact Serpent USA since they are no longer answer anything pertaining to HUDY and Xray....and I am sure RC America will give you a solution, and may be fix it for FREE...since HUDY usually waranty their products even is the user fault....

Give them a try...

thanks for your help, i'll give RC america a call tommorrow.
alberto-i have a set of those easy off things, but the screw isn't actually stripped. It's just in there so tight that i'll need an extremely strong allen driver to get it out. I snapped every allen driver I tried, including an integy titanium coated one. Whatever steel they make that grub screw out of is unbelievably strong, the allen head hasn't even worn after all of this.

Here's a little related question:
I'm really bad at shimming bits....can someone give me a little laundry list of what the proper shim sizes are for each comm size? like .270"=___ and .280"=___.
thanks.

you should only have to shim your bit once. Once it is shimmed correctly it should cut any size comm. Just shim it so it is just barely above center of the comm.
