    Want: Nikkor AI meter coupling ("prong", "rabbit ears")

    I could use at least one or two of the "cutaway" meter coupling "prongs" if anyone has removed them from their AI or AI-s Nikkor lenses.
    I'd prefer a private reply.
    Thanks!
    Bob.

    since others may want to know as well, last time I needed one of these I think I bought it from Nikon direct for a dollar or so.

    a brick & mortar has them on the bay for an exorbitant price.

    Drive up to Shoreline. Go visit Doug at the Camera Clinic. He has tons of the AI style prongs. Partly because I take them off whatever factory AI'd Nikkor I get and reinstall the old style prongs.

    His hours are 10 am - 2 pm Tuesday-Saturday, so it might work better if you go Saturday. Take Exit 175 off I-5, then continue straight north on 5th Ave NE until you hit NE 165th. Park in the parking lot next to the 7-11 on the northeast corner, then walk about three storefronts to the east, and you'll be in front of his shop.

    His phone is 206-367-2440.
