    WTB: Cambo 4x5 NX short 12" rail

    Looking for the short 12" rail (1" square) for a 4x5 Cambo NX. I know some have recommended cutting a piece of 1" square extruded aluminum stock. I tried this with 2040 stock but it didn't quite fit (bummer).

    Thanks.

    Hi,

    I tried your suggestion but maybe I didn't have the right adjusting (set?) screws which I loosened somewhat but didn't detect any movement (I'll have to look closer), the fit was extremely tight and I had a devil of a time getting the standard back off the extruded stock. So no solution yet....

    Hmmmm. I did find the screws as you mentioned on the bottom and sides of the 'railrider'. The upper roller may well be seized as I didn't check to see if it moved freely. It works smoothly with the Cambo rail.

    I'll take another look. It was a really tight fit and it might be the extruded aluminum is nominally 1" but enough oversized not do work.

    I may also have a line ('the bay') on a Cambo short rail if all else fails (or one will turn up sooner or later). I originally bought a 48" piece of the 2040 (or whatever it's called) extruded aluminum to make a 34-36" rail and use the extra for a short rail. That plan foundered when I discovered I couldn't get the standards to go on so it's worth another try.

    Thanks for your help!

    B&H have the monorail in their catalog. Search for "Cambo monorail".
