Default Central machinery complex machine 891 mill parts

Hello, does anyone know where I can get a replacement quill return spring for this machine. I've measured some of it, its about 12mm wide and 1.5mm thick. It's a 1985 model that I got dirt cheap and needs some love.Also saw a thread with the owners manual, I would like to get a copy if someone is willing to share. Thanks.

Default quill return

probably not the help you're looking for but I had a drill press with a broken quill spring & I fabbed a small pulley for the handle & routed a cable over another pulley to a weight to return the quill. An old fashion way that was used years ago. FWIW

Thanks for the responses guys. I had already looked on Amazon and Epay (yes I meant to spell it that way) thus they don't seem to have the same measurements as what I have. I wanted to check with the more experienced crew here before trying to find something and trying to make it work. I am leaning towards ordering one from Grizzly for a similar machine. Waiting to see if there is more feedback here before I pull the trigger. Thanks.

Did you "Ring up" as in talk verbally to HQT ?
The go by size as well as machine brand.
I go to their counter, and actually speak with a human being.

Not much is listed on their website.
