All you need is a something with a hole big enough for the rivet head to go down through while the remainder supports the bar.

The bought one automatically centers though
We should share what we know... someone may learn...

I 'engineered' one (attached), in case the OEM one is not available.

Take a block of hardwood (or metal if you have those capabilities).  Drill a hole in the bottom the same size as the hole in the breaker base. Insert a dowel to locate the block on the base.  Make a mark with the breaker punch to locate the center on the top of the block.  Drill a hole of the desired size on the top of the block.

This might actually support the bar nose better than the supplied one.

A really small pipe nipple might work too!

Thanks for the leg work.  Now I know where it all will be when needed.

Thanks for all the time you put into this for us here too.
