Just sharing something I've found. Looks like these folks can build custom chess pieces. I haven't dealt with them but I wonder if they could duplicate a missing piece or even duplicate a set for one of our computers. I don't think it would be that hard to even add a magnet for an auto-sensory board

How do you keep finding these links, Ismenio?

I read much of this website, and it appears that they primarily specialize in oversized chess pieces, and custom ones made of unusual materials.

I will probably contact them about duplicating the missing brown wooden pawn from my Saitek President set.  However, I am certain it would cost significantly more than the $15 I paid for the entire computer itself!

If is it a lot less than the $99 an entire replacement set costs from Classic Chess and Games, then it still might be worth it, though.  The Novag wooden pieces are working just great, in the meantime.
