I received a number of responses, the majority of which suggested Ebay and
identified the part I was looking for as either a spud bracket (Sun PN
540-3024) or a jiffy bracket (Sun PN 540-2767). I need to use a PO, so
Ebay and other one-off / auction sales are generally out. Of the
remaining responses, I received suggestions for:
Chuck Carlson (carlosc at ccny.com)
Chris Buesgens (cbuesgens at prismsoft.com)
and one response suggesting that no summary was needed. I'm not sure if
Chuck Carlson can take a PO; Chris Buesgens definitely can. Prices range
between a low of $15 and a high of $46.
