    I have an old RB67 that I purchased and one of the Springs is broken on the left winding arm. Anyone know of a source of a replacement spring ?

    I have tried Ace Hardware, and found a close match but it's not the darker spring steel, and it's a bit weak.

    Any other ideas welcome. I will try to post a photo when I have a chance.

    Buy spring steel.

    I have no idea what that spring looks like, but you might be able to make your own if you can find a source for spring steel. A search on the net for spring steel would probably get you some where. Otherwise, just order it from Mamiya. If nothing else, you might contact Oshkosh Coil Spring in Oshkosh, Wisconsin and they can tell you where to buy that stuff. They are only a 100 miles north of you. Ric.

    I don't have any junker bodies now but perhaps you can get an "AS IS" body from KEH (you'll have to call em now) OR in the WTB ask around for a broken body to strip?

    Oh, try Mamiya for the part?
