 Metal Clarinet Parts

I have a metal clarinet and as I was in the process of repairing it, someone stole the register key. Now that leaves me with a working clarinet but no octave key. Does anyone know where I might be able to purchase or acquire a octave key for it? The brand on the bell says:
American Standard
Made by King

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Arun -
Have you tried your local repair shop? Most of them have a spare parts box of loose stuff for just such a situation as yours. Shouldn't cost more than a couple of bucks to get you up and playing again.

Just what I was going to suggest, look among the junkers for a fit, also look on EBAY for a similar {White-King} metal [cheap] or a "parts" auction. Don

It seems no two clarinets are alike, almost. Even on some that are the same brand they are different. Fortunately the octave key is just about the same design on most all clarinets with the only differences being maybe the lenth overall or the width at the axis. If you can't find an exact fit, it shouldn't be to hard to modify on to fit as it sits out by itself and doesn't have to mesh with any other keys.
