    Machine parts

    Is there anyone who could create a film advance lever for a Mamiya C33
    i noticed on ebay a lot of pat mamiya are missing levers. looks like this part can not be obtained. same with leica 41mm sunshades. Working in a machine shop when I was young I know this can't be hard. n6re@hotmail.com

    hi randy

    maybe you can ask the good folks at skgrimes camera repair.
    it is a full service machine shop that caters to the needs of photographers.
    perhaps they can help you out ...
    i have a strange feeling that the first one will cost a small fortune, but
    the ones that follow will be a fraction of the innitial one's cost ..

    As John stated, the first custom part of any kind is the most expensive, and it is likely that no one has stepped up to the plate and ponied up the dough for that prototype. In this case though, your least cost option might be to find a beater and use it as a parts donor...

    Those are both excellent prices Randy. I no longer take custom work or I would have volunteered.
