Yes, when I refer to the broken section as a "leg", I assume that it what you are calling a "column". Actually, I think it may be more correctly called a rod or pin. And if it was made separately from the ejector blade, which is the section that has the cartridge rim recess cut into it, then it may be best to just make a whole new piece as Kutter suggests. In your photo, it looked as if it was all one piece, which is why I felt a repair might be a lot cheaper than making a new one.
