Greetings Nicolas, and welcome. I have not had any experience with taking those apart, probable if it were me I would just "take them apart" figuring they had to go together some how.

Wisdom: Where experience and knowledge combine and become one.

I have a very good memory, just short is all.

HI kolias

No to both

But you can make a longer one for the toggle hold down,,,just pick up a carr.bolt and grind it flat on the head and super glue a rubber tip in place ,,,you can get both items from the hardware store..

The 1/4" turn fastener, they do make them longer but not to much longer than you have now..you can screw on a rod coupling nut and some threaded rod to make it longer...the rod coupling nut is about 1" long on that size...little bit of rod and some super glue and you have it done..

you can also buy longer spindles for the toggle clamps with the rubber feet attached:

or you can buy just the cap to slip over a hex head bolt used for the spindle or threaded caps to screw on all-thread (scroll down to spindle caps):

Sorry Nicolas,
I didn't get the second attachment, picture, in your last email to me about it.

But My Solution is shown attached.

This should work.

Cordially,
Gerry


PS: I started with a 1/4-20 4" long flat head screw. I cut off the head. I drilled a 1/4" hole in a piece of scrap iron, put the threaded part in the hole with a nut on each side. Clamped it to my drill press table and drilled a #36 hole down into it, about 3/8". I then ran a tap into it for 6-32. I found a rubber foot, from some long gone electronic device, put a 6-32 3/8" long Phillips screw with a washer through it. I put a Washer-Nut on the shaft and screwed it into the end of the shaft.
Advantages are that the super glue won't break loose, same method can be used with threaded rod to a limit. (longer rods will bend!), washer-nut distributes the compression over a wider area, rubber foot can be had at electronics stores very inexpensively, the same goes for the 1/4-20 4" long screws.

On my Delta Midi the locking bolt on the tail shaft live center, similar to the one pictured, has broken off (the plastic piece). Anyone know of a substitute I can get at my big box store?

Without knowing the thread size, it makes things difficult.

But here's a link that might help you:

Rick's got a good idea there, that is if you know the thread size, those may be stronger than the original replacement parts which my link was to.
Cordially,
Gerry
