    For the amount of money you would get for them if you sold them, it's not worth the trouble.

    Ahh... but that depends on IF I know what they are and IF I know how/where to sell them and IF they're things people want and IF they can't find them elsewhere. What about the eBay seller with all those ASA/bayo/Kodak to PC adapters at $25 a pop plus shipping? I've been thinking of buying one of the darned things for my old Ektars even though I'll probably never use a flash... just to have one. BTW, many years ago I sold probably 6-8 of those ASA-PC adapters for maybe $5-10 each. Darned inflation!!

    Any more guesses?

    You just need a large enough hammer. snug the loose one up by beating it on the side and beat the other end by beating it on the end.


    There's nothing you can't fix beyond repair with a big enough hammer.

    But they do mate with eachother?

    I once had an old camera that had a weird PC that seemed too large for a regular PC cord. I found out a flash unit with the reflector n all cliped into this socket, it was a flash bulb unit. Perhaps your adaptors are to use a cable so the unit can be used remotely?

    No, they don't mate with each other. One side is PC female and the other side, although very similar to male PC, is definitely not. It apparently adapts a camera or shutter to accept a standard male PC cord. Again though... it's not Leica-M to PC nor ASA/Kodak bayonet to PC. It's something different. **Do you remember what old camera you had with the over-sized PC socket? I suppose that could be it.

    Nope... it's not an ASA-PC adapter. This doesn't have a bayonet lock.

    Wow! You are right about no slots. I just didn't look close enough. Now I'm puzzled too.
