    Was trolling through Google looking for a cheap camera to get parts from when I happened across a site that might have what I need. Not only does he have them they are NEW. A black film rewind knob (AE 1p) which are rare and a back film door latch (Elan II) are on their way to me. Anyone need some small parts that break check him out. He accepts Paypal and ships to Canada cheaply ($6) He has many pages of parts that are hard to locate and friendly/fast service:

    Oh!

    Thank you!! I need a couple of gears/screws that mysteriously disappeared from my Hasselblad. Opened it up one day and they just weren't there. No wonder it never cranked properly.

    Excellent find. The days of finding what you need in a thrift store or garage sale seem to be gone, and ever since KEH discontinued their AS-IS department (sadly), I've been wondering what I'd do if, and when, something breaks on my ancient cameras. Gonna bookmark Bill's site right now.

    Nice resource. Many repair persons don't sell parts except as part of a repair (understandable but not always what we need).

    What was also interesting is his AI conversion; as they use the factory aperture ring.
