I vote replace it.
Doesn t seem like it would be worth the time invested to repair it…. assuming it s the one I see on Amazon for $10.25 USD.

Yeah thats the one. Its a piece of junk. I tried using it to make a mallet this weekend and the brass pieces shifted and messed up my angle. Looking on Amazon looks like there is a Crown wood one and a Japanese one that is all metal. I kind of like the look of wood but supposedly the metal ones lock tighter and dont have the screw to get in the way? These 2 are in my price range:
