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.

You might also try woodworkstoolworks.com. They run approx. $20 to $25 ea. I believe.
Just my 2 cents.

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