Bridgewood machines were sold by Wilke Machine Co in York PA. That company in no longer in business, but the owner is doing doing business under a new name. I have heard he still sells service parts for Bridgewood machines.

Aftermarket replacement parts are the best alternative in problems like this. You can try my source for replacement band saw parts: www.bandsawparts.com.
