    I'm in the process of rebuilding a Kodak #1A Autographic folder.It is in rough shape but I'm optimistic I can do this.Does anybody know where I can source the small rivets that are used in this and other old folding cameras?.

    Thanks,

    Doug:smile:

    Try McMaster Carr. Unbelievable range of products. I am sure you will get other excellent recommendations.

    Probably faster than even finding the rivet in the size you need.
