Hello David,
I suspect you mean editor rather than splicer. I have to say I think Baia were not a particularly famous brand (I think they badged other makers' products).
In any event the cost of replacing a cracked screen is likely to cost more than sourcing a decent replacement off eBay,
John

If the "viewing glass" is a flat piece of ground glass or opal perspex, take it out carefully and try your local glass supplier.
He should be able to cut you a piece to size.
