Default Stanley Job/Master router

Good morning,
My Dad is 84 and a long time woodworker. He has a Stanley Job/Master router (80258 motor) in excellent condition except for one problem. The small spring under the top housing that controls the locking mechanism has metal fatigue and no longer works reliably. Does anyone know where I might find a replacement or have a fix for this problem? Thanks!

If it is just a simple spring it should be fairly easy to replace, Mcmaster Carr has a decent stock, failing that, a competent machine shop should be able to hook you up.
