Help with a card catalog - may be off-topic

By which I mean the physical card catalog, with the drawers.

I recently purchased an old Library Bureau card catalog, which was in kind of rough shape. I had it restored, but the guy who did the restoration (Jeff Sparks, in Bryan Texas -- I cannot recommend him enough -- you can see before and after shots on my livejournal) couldn't match the pull that was missing or the knobs for the card catalog rods. Does anyone know where I might be able to source them? There appear to be two rod systems, but a single type of pull:

I know card catalogs have gone the way of the dodo, but if anyone knows anything about this catalog or how I might find the missing hardware (or miracle of miracles has a pull or some rods lying around I could buy) I would greatly appreciate it.
