    The front rise on my 8x10 2d stripped. Both sides gave out on me. :mad:

    Both the teeth on the knob and the rack they travel on are toast. Anyone know of a place to get a replacement?

    Great, thanks! This is a user and no way a collector's item so poop on authenticity. I just need working rise ASAP.

    That's the way it should be with all gear.

    Not sure I agree. If I had a collector's item it would see very little use and definately not field use. A collector's item is just that. A different purpose.

    I think I have them left over from a 5x7 2d I cannibalized for some other parts. If so I can give them to you if you pay shipping. Can you post a pic of your camera so that I know I'm sending the right thing?

    I am not 100% sure that what I have is the 2d, it says "Eastman view No. 2 Improved Model of a Century View and Empire State No. 2".....

    That would be great keith. I think the knobs are smaller on the 5x7. I have one that I wil check tonight. If they are the same size I will post pics tomorrow. I will gladly pay shipping.

    Then I would sell it to a collector...and get something useful instead.

    I'm really allergic to collections right now.
