So I picked up this neat littler German camera a Balda Baldinette, it had most of the original leather case and strap and the bellows looked good... what I didn't notice was the advance knob had completely broken off and is most likely because the ball bearings had ceased and the guy forced it and snapped the metal.

Anyone have a spare? HAHA, like a broken one but that the advance knob is good? see...




I assume (and hope) the knob itself has a screw that can remove it to get to the 3 screws that hold the rotation piece in place. Once those three screws are out you can just take the piece out.

I have turned it and its VERY hard to turn. Even if I could get the bearings lubed up, I no longer have a knob and the metal is broken so I don't have another solution besides obtaining a replacement part from some kind APUGer...

Anyone?

I'll take other suggestions...

Thanks.
