The spring is repairable most of the time. In a pinch, I believe you can get a Mark V quill spring to work.

Can you take a picture of what you have and your problem?

ANY shopsmith quill return spring(including model 10's) will work.

521875 includes the housing.

Used can be obtained on e-bay etc.

Replacing it into the housing can be difficult and a religion test.

Also it IS possible to add the slotted hole to one that is broken. Not easy either.

P.S. Reinstalling a spring etc. onto the shaft can also be very trying.
