A replacement base is available. Specify gas or electric heat when ordering. Johnstone supply or grainger should be able to hook you up.

"Do these things fail ever? I ask because today, the bedrooms on our top floor are super warm. The temp reads 75! No one has touched the thermostat"
--Answer:Yes they can get out of calibration or stuck. did you clean the dust buildup off it to take the picture? you may have fixed it by doing that.
and when I try to make the heater kick on by turning the wheel, it doesn't click.
--Answer: mercury bulb thermostats never click. if they do , you better run ......
However I can hear the boiler running. Come to think of it, it might be running constantly!oh my oil!!!!! Any thoughts?
--Answer: It is unlikely that your round thermostat directly controls your boiler. it probably turns on a fan, or enables a valve to put hot water to radiators or something similar. your boiler maintains a constant temperature so hot water is available whenever you need it.
