    I am planning on modifying / rebuilding an older Burke & James monorail to
    a flatbed camera. Can anyone advice me of suppliers of suitable gearrack and pinon to such a project. Most suppliers I find in a netsearch sells only in large quantities. But my plans, are at best, just one camera.
    Thanks Steinar M

    McMaster Carr is a good source. Also, you could try any industrial supplier that sells bearings etc.
