Unfortunately cost and environmental factors have chased a lot of these small parts off shore. You could hire a machine shop to build one for you. But it will cost 10 to 100 times the part you can get online as a one off.

An example: Lifesavers was an American made candy until 2002 when taxes on sugar pushed it to Canada. By moving they saved millions in a sugar taxes.

Its a faster-better-cheaper society tends to move manufacturing to cheaper sources of labor and materials.
