Port Townsend has all the the patterns from Sam Morse so if you want anything BCC specific, they are certainly the place and worth the wait, their quality is excellent.
I like to keep my eyes open for old Merriman items as the quality can be stunning. If you can develop a relationship with a shop that trades in used parts, they will keep an eye out for you. Craigslist can be helpful too. For example there is a listing for a Merriman bronze anchor roller set that is amazing in Seattle. Toplicht in Germany can be a good, but expensive, resource. They would have your boom gallows parts and may have the type of station bases you need. I wouldn't recommend eBay so much, I listed a nice old heavy bronze deadlight hoping someone would need it, but it was snapped up by a dealer, buffed up and back on eBay for three times the price.
