    Hey everyone
    I'm trying to find the name of a specific part on my 10x8 camera, it's the brass rectangle plates that slides down to lock the lens board in place, anyone know what it's called?

    you can see them in this photo

    Thanks guys!
    I'm trying to convert a Gandolfi lens board to take wista boards so I can change between lenses easily, I tried a quick search on google to see if it possible to buy this part but I can't find anywhere that sells them, would you have any idea where to buy this part

    Try ebay. Do a search on Deardorff. Also, another ebay search "skink" has different camera building parts available.
