I am afraid that the call for brass specialty items is very small in this day and age. Companies that use this type of item have them made one offs or small production runs. Either use Stainless and fab yourself whatever you can't get, or buy from someone who does this type of manufacturing himself (Ron for example). If you want to build your own camera, build your own camera. Expecting anyone in the industry to supply you with hard to manufacture products that undercut their own market, isn't a reasonable request.

You might find one of the kit camera people who might help you, but then again, jut buy one of their kits.

Or wait till that perfect Kodak D2 comes around at the local yard sale for 15 bucks.
