    Hi Tom,
    I checked my assortments but have nothing that matches your jewel. Does Cousins have a jewel with a slightly larger diameter same I.D.? Yes you could always make a setting but if you would like to keep things original and get it running for now you could make a bushing with same dimensions as jewel and press that in for now while continuing your search. This would give you a chance to do some small drilling and possibly make a small spade drill for that .14 pivot hole. Good practice! You can also buy small twist or Mascot spade drills. If possible try grabbing some mixed jewel assortments up on Ebay or maybe from Uncle Larrys or Dashto. I used to purchase gross assortments from La Rose but they are no longer in biz. I’m sure you’ll find some out there somewhere though. Always good to have on hand.
