Do you have a friend nearby with a milling machine? If it's anything like my small Delta or Rikon it should be fairly straightforward work with an end mill on a chunk of aluminum or steel. The delta has a square support with a slot for forward/back micro adjuster and two square holes to hold rectangular blocks on either side of the blade held with set screws. Without broaching capability it would probably be quicker to make it for cylindrical blocks instead of rectangular (or mill then file the corners square). Or use some small square tubing and weld it to a shaft.

I'd say pack up the pieces and come visit but it's a bit of a drive (and I probably couldn't do it until May.)
