    I have a Toyo 45A field camera with only the larger 3/8 socket, purchased that way recently, but my tripod plate won't fit that socket and so require the smaller 1/4 thread. I'll be reaching out to Toyo this week, but thought I'd find out if anyone on Apug could help.

    Thanks
    Chris

    a $1 or $2 bushing should be available at nearly any camera store

    I also have a Toyo 45AII and am in need of the 3/8" tripod socket for this camera. If anyone has one which they do not need perhaps we can work out a deal. —mph

    Pioneer, thanks for the post however to clarify the tripod socket for a Toyo Field camera is a non-standard insert which either has the 1/4-20 or 3/8-16 threads.

    But if it has 3/8 threads, the 1/4 bushing screws directly into it.
