Looking for a replacement part for my camp saw/grill
I must have left behind the top piece that tightens down the tool. Company has changed focus and can't find options to replace this piece. Love this tool.
Help..
Thanks in advance..

It's a saw and a grill combined?

Could you describe the missing piece? From the picture it looks like everything is there from a functional standpoint - you could hand-tighten that turnbuckle, but maybe there was originally a knob of some sort, or something that the hooks hook into on the side pieces?

It's possible that you could build that piece yourself.
The turnbuckle should be easy enough to find.
It's finding the threaded rods in a length that you could cut and bend that might be the biggest issue.

Oh, is it the turnbuckle that's missing? You should be able to replace that (maybe Menards, or a hardware store, or McMaster-Carr online). If you find a turnbuckle but the rod is too short, you could buy some longer threaded rod of the same thread, cut to length, and bend the hooks in a vice.

Looks like this was a saw that also could convert into a grill. Here is an old thread about it, made by Upgrade Innovations: BWCA.com thread Upgrade Innovations review

If it's the turnbuckle/rod section you've lost, that looks a lot like a screen door turnbuckle. The rods that come with the screen door turnbuckles would certainly be long enough to cut/bend to fit, but will probably be heavier than the originals.

Keep in mind one of the rods would probably need to be left-hand threaded, but you could probably use the left-hand threaded rod that comes with the replacement turnbuckle, even if too short, by getting a longer right-hand threaded rod for the other side and letting the turnbuckle be off-center.
