    silveror0, please see below answer from Tiffen:
    The Saunders easels have been discontinued for several years, we no longer make them.

    I found that link within about the last two months as a result of my Google search for a source for Saunders easels. I don't know of any way to determine when it was created. Sorry for any confusion I may have caused. I'm saddened by what you learned from Tiffen. IMO they were the best easels in the market.

    Glazer's Cameras (an APUG advertiser) in Seattle have some stock of apparently new Saunders easels.

    Curt, the Saunders Group discontinued using those cylinder years ago. Now 10 years after the Tiffen Co. acquired the Saunders Group, we discontinued all the easels. This was about 4 years ago. I am sorry we have no parts left.

    This is the definitive answer to my question. I'll fab. up a lever similar to my 11x14 model.

    I managed to find an exact replacement gas spring for my Saunders 16x20 easel. It was a bit over $15.00 plus shipping. I'm going to try to include a link.

    Truly astonishing that so few quality 4-blade easels are still being manufactured. The only pneumatic 4-blade manufactured anywhere is the Kaiser Pro 4-Blade 12x16 inch (30 x 40cm) Adjustable Enlarging Easel. In the meantime, I plan on buying as many 4-blade Saunders easels as I can find on ebay for parts, simply to back up my current Saunders workhorses.
