Default Broken part for Symmar on an older Compur shutter

I have an old 150mm Symmar convertible lens with a Compur shutter, and the
aperture tab broke off. If anyone knows of a source for parts like this, or
if anyone has a non-working example of a Compur shutter of this age (it
probably doesn't even have to be the same size shutter), please let me know.
The knob is an integral part of a small pointer that resides over the
aperture scale, which is in turn held onto the shutter by means of a small
screw. All I'd need is the pointer with the knob, so just the little "arm"
that attaches with a small screw. If you can help, please email me at
"cell ist /\at/\ com cast /dot\ net" (remove all spaces and slashes, change
at and dot to the appropriate symbols). I still remember the days when there
were no worries with posting your real email as is, but spam has long made
this an unwise practice. Thanks!

Parts for old Compur shutters are hard to come by. You
might try some of the more active shutter repair people one
of them might have a spare he would be willing to sell or
give away. Try Steve Grimes shop at http://www.skgrimes.com
Perhaps the part could be replaced as part of a CLA. These
are good shutters and cleaning or repairing them is a whole
lot cheaper than replacing them.
