Oops! Broken tool rest *PIC*

TomW in SouthJersey
>I just had posted a few days ago that I received a lathe as a gift. Its an old Sears lathe. Today while trying my hand at turning a small Christmas ornament the base of the tool rest broke. It looks as though it has been repaired previously. Here's a picture.
My question is, are any universal parts available to repair this or do I start looking for a replacement lathe? If parts are available, can someone recommend where to look?
Thanks in advance,
Tom
