Just bought a used Wohlhaupter UPA 3 from ebay for my home shop. Price was good and it seems in nice shape, feed, rapid return etc works, but it is missing the RH stop dog. This is a small "L" shaped bit of ground steel that you might think would cost maybe 10 bucks....well it's more like $120 from Woulhaupter. Before I make the part or break down and buy it, anyone have an extra one just laying around gathering dust they might want to sell?? I've used one of these heads a few times, but always at work. Since they appear to be very costly to fix...anyone have any do and don'ts that are not obvious...I'd like this thing to last a while.
