    I am thinking about building a bellows extension for my 8x10. Can anyone suggest a parts supplier for the brass teeth needed to extend the track?

    Thanks

    I do not have the URLs handy, but all three carry what you are looking for. If it is linear motion you need, look up gear racks and pinion drives.

    You will need to determine the width and pitch of the teeth on the existing rack. Each site should have a diagram showing how to measure your rack.

    Didn't you just cut your 8x10 down extention wise a few months back?
