Hi Dan. Welcome to the forum. The design of the spokes may have been the manufacturers design. Spokes like those are turned out on automatic lathes and when I was in a business where I needed spindles I only needed to order 500 to get them turned on one. There are companies that specialize in selling spindles and you can probably find a bunch of them by searching "spindles" but finding an exact match could be tricky.

That would leave you with either making your own replacement(s) or replacing all of them with a ready available one so that they match.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Welcome to the forum, Dan.

I agree with Charles. May be easier to replace all the spokes. Is there a turning club in your area? Some one may do them for you as a project.

I don't mind if other members disagree with my comments.

Dan if you cannot turn a replacement spoke yourself then find your local turning club and I am sure that one of the members will turn a new spoke the same as all the others, I would do it a a favor however you will have to ask the turner what he would want from you to make the new spoke/s. NGM
