    Question about camera parts

    I'm currently fixing up an old Zenit lens. Its similar to the bessamatic dkl lens.
    I'm almost done except there's a missing spring (a long skinny coiled one, it is sort of optional, i can make the lens work without it really, but that's besides the point.) Anyways, are there places that sell tiny springs (even tiny screws for future reference) somewhere, instead of using parts camera/lens?

    The two places I'd try are Small Parts at http://www.smallparts.com/ and Micro-Tools at http://www.micro-tools.com/

    McMaster-Carr (http://www.mcmaster.com/) has music wire down to 0.009", if that is suitable. You can easily make your own. They also have some ready made springs, but the smallist wire I found was 0.107, which may be to large. Search for 'Music Wire' and go from there.
    You might also try American Science and Surplus (http://www.sciplus.com/category.cfm/...0/category/182) The places suggested by Ken Fretz are good, and Johnkpap also has a good idea.
