    Graflex Parts?

    I'm lookinf for parts for my Pacemaker. I'm specifically looking for a side-mounted Kalart rangefinder and mounting hardware, a top-mounted viewfinder and mounting hardware.

    Is there a master site that stocks such things?

    Graflex.org should be the master site but no sales are allowed

    You can try looking/posting here: http://www.kyphoto.com/classics/foru...tml?1252963181

    Fred Lustig is apparently the "go to" person for Graflex repair, but I don't know whether he is still in business. I do know that when I needed some parts a few years ago, he was unwilling to sell the parts without doing the repair. Understandable, but not what I needed at the time.

    In another thread "Speed graphic question" (EASmithV, you have posted in that thread!) Fotoguy20d says he has a lot of Kalart rangefinder stuff.

    Yeah we were going to strike up a deal, but he got sick, and it kinda fell through.

    I saw one on ebay... complete, but that was about a month ago. Unfortunately ebay is the "master source" for most old stuff anymore.

    I needed focus rails for my Crown & when I saw an ebay seller who had some similar items I sent him a question asking if had the part I was after. He did so & I bought direct. So my advice is to find the people selling lots of Graflex parts on ebay & ask them.

    I have a couple of Graflex 4x5's I should probably just part out. But I really don't have the time. If I sell them whole as parts they're not worth much but the disparate pieces are often worth more than an entire very decent camera... ehh... decisions.
