You have 3 choices .....

In order of increasing expense:
1. Find an new or used one.
2. Repair this one by brazing. A competent machinist will do this.
3. Make a new one. Again a competent machinist can do this.

I have had pretty good success brazing cast iron with an oxy-acetylene torch. This part would require a holding fixture to keep it correctly aligned. Maybe as simple as a bolt going through the non-threaded hole... I donno. But a machine shop would have no issues and it will get you to the train on time rather than waiting for one to show up on Ebay ....?

You had better fix what made it break or it may happen again. I won't ask, but if the saw fell off the truck or down the stairs, then there is a cure for that ..... just sayin'

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

Would help to know which saw this is.

EBAY is a good source of parts.

The OWWM forum is a source as well.

While the old WT saws are cool, I see them show up for sale relatively cheap on occasion, might be possible to buy a complete saw for spare parts.

I picked up a smaller one recently, buying some other tools, guy had a smaller WT saw listed for $25 too. Was really trying not to add to my collection, when he told me it was his grandfather's I couldn't help it.
