    right word for cog wheel?

    Hi John,

    I think Arigram is not the only one to benefit from your tips. Especially the links to small part and mcmaster are nice. Indeed, very nice shops, but, pray, my dear fellow, why don't they sell cog wheels? And if they do sell 'em, under what name can they be found? I know no other word than the cog wheel one.... or is that immensely out of fashion these days?

    Cheers, medform-norm (in a very 19th century-ish mood from reading too much Henry James - I do apologize...)

    Yes,it is! Funny, I know the word, but never knew you could also use to denominate a cog wheel. As I said elswehere, you can learn something new here every day.

    Thanks, Diane, for making our shopping sooo much easier!

    Cheers, medform-norm

    Ari,
    Here are two sites that feature AGFA repairs, but the techniques could be applied to other cameras.


    http://www.ph.utexas.edu/%7Eyue/misc/AnscAgfa.html


    http://www.davidrichert.com/AGFA%20rebuild/agfa.htm

    (be sure to visit the DIGITAL camera repair site at the top. Repair. Yea, right.
    Digital camera re-buy is more like it.)

    So... Once you've repaired them, will you be into selling some of them to us cheapskates?

    Rick Oleson has an informative website here: http://rick_oleson.tripod.com/index-27.html. Lots of DIY info, sketches, etc. His classic camera collection is also on another branch of that website if you like that sort of thing.

    RE polishing metal, especially brass

    Remove it from the wood first. Metal polish kills the wood. Especially Brasso, and liquid polishes, which seep into the screw holes and causes rot.

    Be content to use Pledge or simple spray on polish for the bellows, especially thin leather. It is easy to make the cardboard stiffeners unglue themselves. Never use neatsfoot oil, or armorall.

    If your screw drivers don't fit perfectly, buy a new one and file it to fit.

    Do less than you think you should. Consider the era of the camera. Find reference materials from that time for finishes, and metal work.

    Be careful when working from guides by 'repair authorities'. There have always been many technicians, some of them good. Not many good ones ever wrote how-to books.

    Have fun !

    Ari,
    For patching pinholes in bellows, Artists acrylic paint can be used using a toothpick or straight pin to apply it. Apply in light coats & allow to dry between. It may only require one coat & maybe you'll have a source for artists supplies locally.

    Small Parts has brass rack and pinion gears in stock if that is what you are looking for. That would be the correct term for the type of gears that are used in the focusing rails of most field cameras.
