Gary,  You asked if Cushcraft is on line and if parts ordering was avail.   
The following "help" is not  assuming that you need all this info but maybe 
will help others.   In my business I do a lot of searching for 
companies/suppliers/data.  The easiest way to do it is to first take the co. 
name and try it as a web address on your internet browser, i.e.:  This happens to be Cushcraft's on line address.

  If that doesn't work, go to a search engine such as  or   Search for the name, i.e. cushcraft to find their site.

  Sorry for the short lesson in what some may think is the obvious, but I've 
been there before and many still are.  Those who are can get a faster answer 
knowing the Internet procedure, although our friends here on TT are very 
quick and resourceful.

  Once you get to Cushcraft, you will see that they have a "down load" 
catalog.  A lot of neophytes, as I was, to Internet find this need for  
"Acrobat" reader intimindating.  In fact, it is very easy to download into 
your system, it is free, and it is the mechanism  most sites format their 
catalogs under a (whatever).pdf   .Pdf is a file format that Acrobat 
translates for you.  The instructions for use are easy.  The main point is 
that this is a software in your system which either your system will open up 
when it recognizes that a file you want to download is a " (whatever).pdf 
file.   OR, if your system doesn't automatically open the file via its 
Acrobat software, then you open the Acrobat software that you've downloaded, 
go to its "file open" and enter the name of the file (a catalog, etc) that 
you have downloaded.    As long as it is a (whatever).pdf, Acrobat will take 
care of it.

  On quick inspectioin, it doesn't look like the Cushcraft site has on line 
ordering but they have dealers listed and if you have the catalog you'll have 
the info you need.  I'm sure that Cushcraft will sell you direct, at full 
list, if you call them directly.

Again, sorry if I'm talkin basics here that you already know but maybe this 
will help the less experienced reading this.  I've been there, and still am 
certainly not as PC and internet astute as I'd like to be.   Cheers,  Steve
