    CTX 3030 11" Coil Broken Ears

    Hi,
    I have a CTX 3030 and both the 'ears' that attach the shaft to my 11" coil snapped off.
    I have seen 'ear' protectors/strengtheners etc made with a 3D printer but I can't find them for the CTX just the Equinox.
    Does anyone know of anyone selling 'ear' strengtheners?
    I also tried glueing them with JB Weld but didn't hold.

    I would attach a small piece of wood to each side of your shaft end and tie strap it right onto the coil.
