    Wisner help.

    I have a 4x5 Tech field camera with a graf lock back. The left hand spring that holds the ground glass to the frame snapped in two and I lost the thumb screw that holds down that side is lost.
    I tried SK Grimes and Richard Ritter for replacement parts and I hope to hear from them soon. But, maybe some of you apuggers may also offer advice?
    I hate to lose my Graf lok back.
    Thanks

    There is a parts catalog that caters to the watch maker industry. It is called "Small Parts" Check them out and see if they have what you need.

    I have understood Ron to say that he was still servicing his cameras even though manufacturing is down for now.
    Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed.

    Does anyone know what happened?

    Ron is in the process of downsizing the company. I was at his place last week and they were busy with orders. He is having a new building built (3/4's done now) and this should be ready in a couple of months. Marie (his head woodworker) will be building the cameras from now on and ULF will be the only cameras being made. "P" lightweight ULF models will be the only cameras available. As far as I can tell no 8x10's or smaller will be built. Things could change but that is what is going on now to the forseeable future. He will take new orders from dealers only.

    For what it's worth, I have emailed Ron Wisner three times in the last two months regarding the purchase of a 4x5 lens board and have received zero responses. This is disturbing since I have been a customer buying directly from him since 1991.

    Would suggest contacting Richard Ritter. Excellent service and very reasonable pricing. His website:
