    That $0.02 part that is holding up your project.

    Happened to everyone before. Your project is going well and then you realise there is a small part that you needed and can't go on without it.

    Just wanted to start a tread so we can all list THAT part so perhaps someone can come up with a creative solution or offer a trade.

    What's holding up my various projects doesn't even cost 2 cents ...... time!

    I've got a good supply of film, paper, chemicals, etc., plenty of ideas, more equipment than is healthy, yet with all the other things that *have* to be done such as mending the car, maintaining the house, sorting out elderly parents, going to work and so on, the time I can devote to photography probably doesn't average more than a day a month.
    Oh, to be retired!

    Screws for the Speed Graphic that have not been made for over 40 years.
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    A number of the screws I have needed to fix little camera pieces come out of dead electronic devices that my kids use and end up killing off. The latest fix was to attach a PC sync contact back onto a bracket o a TLR 80mm lens for Mamiya C serise. A sniff though the 'junk box' yielded a Nintendo DS that has a screw holding down it's pc board that did the job just fine when transferred on to the Mamiya lens set.
    my real name, imagine that.

    The screws for my 1928 4"x5" Graflex Model D are handmade so a Nintendo DS would not help.

    Do you know someone with a halfway decent lathe?
    It's not that difficult to cut screws.

    Some countersunk, slotted brass screws to hold the front on my new/old 1890s tropical Goerz ANGO.
    Using a file, I reworked a couple of brass screws from a connector block. They look almost right but the slots are too big.

    Got the camera beaten up somewhere between CA and my front doorstep and I never paid insurance (live and learn!), so I had to reglue wood, etc.

    Someone, somewhere has previously removed the iris from the lens, and the viewfinder is also absent so it's a display camera for now.

    Heck, I could still shoot with the lens wide open but it just don't feel right if it ain't all there..

    Home made waterhouse stops screwed into the lens? Off beat, but it could work.
