Probably depends what type of mast you have. Start by giving the type of mast, the boat it is to fit and key dimensions (ID of mast, length and breadth of rectangle section) - you might even find someone's got one (I assume it's not a "standard" metal mast on an old boat, as for these there are generally standard fittings available anyway)

After that, try the mast manufacturer - eg I know CST supply mast steps to fit their masts (not UK and not cheap given exchange rate and shipping costs, but their customer service is pretty good). Or whoever the manufacturer of your mast is

Try a boatbuilder, especially one who supplies (or has previously supplied) a mast of your type - they might at least be able to give you the name of a machine shop where you can get one made up

If all else fails, guess you're down to trying a local machine shop yourself to see if they can do you one

But with the mast type and specs, suggestions can probably get more specific
