I did a Homer Simpson "Doh" and grabbed another edge finder.And don't beat yourself up on running one too fast and it coming apart. I did that to a Starrett at work once and was luck enough to be able to get it back together (it was a communal tool). A hard lesson on running at the correct speed, but one truly learned.
This morning, I found the errant tip. The tensioning spring had been severely distorted by the event but I threaded a wire rod through it to keep it straight and reformed the spring. You can never return an extension spring to a close coil form so the spring was now too long for proper tension. Removing 1/8" from the spring solved that. I put the edge finder back together and tested it and it works as well as ever.
