Need 10" Crescent wrench part

Some how some where in the back yard I recently lost the screw pin that holds the adjusting worm gear in place for my 10" Crescent wrench (one made in the USA not China). I use this wrench mostly for draining oils from my 3 vehicles cause they all are different size and it's much easier to just grab the trusty Crescent wrench each time out of the tool box.

I have not been able to find a source for parts for these wrenches, especially since most of the newer wrenches have that pin pressed in instead of having threads on the end of it. And most new ones I'm finding are made in China which makes the parts unusable even if I could find it.

Anyone have any ideas, suggestions, or advice on where I can obtain a new screw pin for my 10" U S made Crescent wrench. I know I could just buy a new wrench a lot easier but this one was given to me by my Dad (who passed away in 2007) back in the '60s and just hate not having it usable any more. I know I could just use a 10-32 threaded bolt long enough to reach the threads but that would really look cruddy.

Thanks.

Amazon.com: Crescent AC115PSK 15-Inch Replacement Pin, Spring and Knurl for Adjustable Wrench: Home Improvement

Here is a start, maybe it will lead to a 10". Good luck I hope you find a replacement part for this keep sake.

Try these guys.. Dont see one listed, but, they have parts for the older Crescent USA tools.. Worth an email.

Crescent Adjustable Wrench 10 inch Replacement Knurl

You could also go down to a mom-n-pop type hardware store and fine a set-screw that would work or be adapted.

Any of THESE work??? If not, it appears that this vendor can source replacement Crescent parts.

I'm trying to get something out of Apex Tool Co, which makes the Crescent wrenches but they keep telling me they don't handle the old ones anymore. I've tried the pin out of a friend's newer wrench and even though the wrench is heavier the pin is still the same size.
I've sent Apex a second e-mail explaining this to them so we'll see what they respond this time. Surely it can't take much to pick up a pin and mail it to me but maybe they expect to sell a crate of wrenches or none at all.
Appreciate the link to Amazon but I haven't been able to locate those same pieces for my 10".

How about a pawn shop? Most have allot of old tools. Buy one and just use the pin.

When I bought it the kid said if I break it to bring it back, I ask even with a 4 foot cheater bar? and he said I told you if you break it, bring it back and we will replace it. Not as pretty as the real thing, but got the job done for me. (and I haven't had to take it back,,,,yet, maybe need a longer cheater )
