    Cable release socket broken off......

ID:	98790my old 165mm super angulon, the big one in the black/silver shutter. The cable release socket is missing/broken off (previous owner) and I've been able to use it by hot gluing a cable release in position (ugly and has come loose more than once). Anyone have a replacement that will fit these holes? Long shot, I know. I do have a milling machine.

    here are the specs for cable release threads. Tapping a hole to match takes some gear I don't have.

    Perhaps you could mount a Linhof Quick Socket to the board. The Socket's pin could go into the hole, once the screw is removed.

    This is another Linhof part that might work once mounted.

    That is a picture of a Right Angle PC tip for flash synch when the lens is mounted in a recessed lens board. It has nothing to do with a cable release. It is also for a Copal shutter, not a Compur.

    When I packaged and sent the repair parts at Marflex up to Nippon there was a box of Compur spare parts - also a box of Copal spare parts - Nippon might have the part that you are looking for.

    The original spec is a US government spec for these threads. I have been trying to buy a stock tap for about a year and it doesn't exist in the world. I'm gonna have to have some ground to order. When I do, I'll get a dozen.

    For a socket, perhaps trimming down the right wirenut would work?

    Anyone know a similar socket that'll fit. Bob, I'll contact those guys.

    Nippon said it cannot be repaired because the shutter housing is broken. ??? Looks like a straightforward fix if I had the part. I'll make the part tapped with 6-32 threads for now. Evan, I'll take one of those taps. Or two, I tend to brake taps.

    Evan,

    When you make these taps, please get some prepaid pre orders here. I need one also.

    Thanks!
