On the table legs there is a small metal piece that acts as a support, it snapped and now I need a new one to get it back together.
The metal piece in the attachment is what broke. The link above shows what it looks like, the top part snapped.
The top was bent and snapped when a screw came out and the table was leaned on.
Where could I get something like this? The table itself is fine, I just need to get this piece and it will be fully functional again.
you might get a piece of steel tubing to match the diameter of the old part, flatten the ends, drill and bend it to the correct angle
I think nona has the best plan. Doubtful that you can find a direct replacement if the table has any age on it.
You can get tubing at any home store. Cut to length, flatten the ends with a hammer or vice, drill a couple of holes and install. Bet you can do everything for under $10.
Heating the ends of the steel rod until it is red hot will make flattening them much easier than doing it cold.
That sure looks like a solid rod to me not tubing.
Heat and beat, then drill and bend in that order.
Buy one of these and you'll be 1/2 way to making two of them.

you should be able to get some solid steel rod where the angle iron and redi rod is sold in a home center. heat, hammer, drill, bend, and attach.
if you live two miles beyond the flat edge of the earth, you can order just about anything from mcmaster.com
sig: if this is a new economy, how come they still want my old-fashioned money?
