Thanks Peter. I e-mailed Richard and will call him tomorrow.

Attached is a picture of the part that broke. I was able to remove it from the camera so if I can find a replacement part, I can repair it myself.

The part that attaches to the camera inserts into a small hole in the wood via pin at the base of the brass disc that is attached to the camera. The pin is .4 cm in diameter and .6 cm long.

Does anyone know where I can get this part?
I will try to get help from Richard Ritter, but if he can't I'd like an alternate source for parts.
