Fence for an old Pistourius Vee Nailer

I'm looking for a fence for an old Pistourius Vee Nailer. The one I have has been handmade out of wood and the right angle isn't good. I really want a metal one like it originally had. This is what it looks like:

Anyone know if there is a supplier out there?

For that age of a nailer - very doubtful that you will find a supplier. Maybe that is why you have a wood fence now instead of metal. A suggestion is to go to a metal manufacturing shop, I'm sure they can build whatever you want.

Have you considered a new or good used modern style Vnailer?

That's my thought.... but I live in cyprus and 'accuracy' such as requesting a perfect right angle on the fence, is a bit of a stretch here. There's a local guy 'Iron Horse George' who's very good, but again, I don't know how perfect he could make it. :)

Maybe someone has a broken one that you could purchase for parts - that is a stretch though. I'm sorry I am out of ideas.

I get you on this.
How perfect it might be is a question.
But... often the moulding isn't perfect as well.

You might try to order a fabricated metal fence from a company in the U.S. if you can provide the specs on the fence size.
This seems to be a fairly simple metal fabrication where a number of companies could supply the part if given the specs.

You might contact Steve at www.aimequipmentcompany.com
He has a lot of equipment for sale and help with parts as well.

Any fabrication shop with a basic manual Bridgeport milling machine can knock that out with accuracy, even in Cyprus.
You just have to look.

That might be a problem, last I checked, Bridgeport was in Connecticut, not Cypress.

Sorry,

Jerome, sorry if my sarcasm didn't come through.
Bridgeport machines are pretty useful.
