I haven't been able to locate any Nagy representative anywhere to replace parts. Does anyone here own a Nagy or know where to find the Nagy company? (New Zealand, I know, but where?)
I have just dismantled a 1981 Nagy upright spinning wheel. I know that it is six years since you posted your request, but if you are like me you will have kept the wheel until you were sure that there were no parts anywhere in the world. I have used a couple of the parts, but what is left may contain what you want. Nagy as a company no longer exists, but the wheels are still very popular. Some people compete to see who can find the oldest one!
