A couple of weeks ago when I dropped my 1100 at a stop light (Embarrassing? You bet.) I broke the upper arm and the chrome painted ball on the right hand side. It's a duplicate of the lower left hand side that is pictured below.The plastic wing itself survived; only the upper arm broke.

Anybody have one that they'd be willing to part with for a nominal sum and postage to 19348? Thanks.

I have no clue. Dumb luck, I guess.

I have the brackets that bolt to the plastic, not the arm's, think I used them for something else.

Thanks to all who replied (sor far). Guess I'll give it a little more time and then get a new set if no bracket is available.

Was just browsing thru the latest Whitney catalog. They have the set for $52. + shipping. I had no idea the price had gone up so much.

Just a shot in the dark here but if the bracket can be straighted out and repaired you could check out the local Home Depot or whatever and see if any cabinet hardware will match . You might get lucky and save some big bucks .?
