Bend rewind shaft/sprocket

Somehow I've bent the rewind shaft/sprocket which makes rewinding, advancing and even removing the film very difficult. Any idea where I can either have the camera repaired (preferably in the U.S.- I'm in northern California) or a source for the replacement part?

Thanks in advance,

Talk to Vince Marino at Olympus
He can recommend a repair shop
My XA's winder spool slips causing overlapping exposures.
I need to watch the crank when I wind to be sure it advanced enough.
Good luck
Exposure compensation or bracketing can be accomplished with the ASA setting
