Any good offers?

Your best bet would be to buy a "parts horn", possibly on ebay. This is one of the problems of owning these fine saxes.

What kind of parts?

Shouldn't be much of a problem getting rods, posts, screws, thumbrests, and keyguards -- these are pretty generic. Ferree's will have a wide selection but "parts horns" off ebay might get you a lower price. Nobody will sell you a specific "side E hinge for 1953 SML" -- you have to try several and be ready to cut and re-thread some rod stock.

Fortunately for you, though, as Morgan and I have compared, over the years from WWII on, the SML's changed very little, mostly cosmetically. Parts are either identical or so similar as to be easily modified.
