    So Hub isn't making Packards anymore? I wonder if mine will now attract collectors.

    I've e-mailed them directly figuring that they sell the bulb all by itself. I can get the tubing at a medical supply store.

    It took a bit of searching--they seem to hide it rather well, but here is the link:

    I was just checking them last week as I was looking for a packard with a big (>=4") opening.

    Bob,

    You can order just the bulb and bulk hose by the foot. I think the bulb is about $16 and the hose is a $1 per foot IIRC. No need to pay for the thingy on the end unless you just want it. The best thing is to call or e-mail and tell them what you have.

    I just spoke with Reno at the Packard Shutter Company (a very nice guy, BTW) - That webpage just went active this morning!

    Anyway, his father was the guy behind Packard shutters at Hub Photo. He's now finally retired, and Reno has moved the whole Packard shutter operation to California. At the moment, the truck with EVERYTHING is broken down somewhere in Wyoming! He hopes to be up and running soon.

    I'll have to change the links for Packards on my website now...

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Done and done! I got the same recommendation for Packard from Adam at S.K. Grimes. I send an e-mail, but with their truck broken down on the road I think I'd better give them some breathing room and not bug them for a reply until they're settled!
