Need part for Craftsman Jointer
 
I recently purchased a Craftsman Jointer on eBay. It works, but has a damaged part, which the Sears parts people tell me is no longer available, so I'm wondering if anyone has a broken one laying around that I could scavenge for parts. It's about 10 years old, is a model number 149.23628, and the specific part is the chip chute.

Can anyone help?

I couldn't even find that model. Are you sure it's the correct number? Do you have a photo of the part and the jointer?

Here's a picture of the jointer and the broken part.

Received the owners manual today, and was able to get the actual part numbers, but the sears website says they are unavailable. Chip chute number is 4540-042-70.

As you can see from the photo of the chip chute, the top piece of sheet metal has been peeled back like an anchovy can. I believe I can just cut off that piece of damaged sheet metal and it will work, but I would rather have the original part for safety's sake.

Straighten it out and bring it to an auto body shop to get tack welded.
