    Re: TravelWide Repair Question

    I need at least one part, but would commit to two depending on cost.

    The early adopters got into the TW for $99. The follow-on buyers got in for $150. The camera cost me something <$200 (don't remember exactly) with shipping from someone who had bought two. This is not a premium/rare/collectable item so a sky-high custom part won't work for me.

    But I do want to fix mine if possible.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I understand. I have a pm off to the guy that said he had a dxf file, but no response yet.

    I was able to get replacements of the broken pieces by leaving a comment in the Travelwide Kickstarter page. Not sure if that way is working anymore?

    is possible with my machines.

    If it is possible to redesign and to improve this parts given by the space inside of the camera, I could create some improved parts, probably out of aluminium, if SK Grimes doesn't jump in again, some day..

    No files needed, I have to move the wheels and knobs of my machines by hand and by brain, but I need one complete system (TW body, helicoil or whatever is screwed in front of the body, broken parts inside of the body, screws) to have a look on the possibilities.
    It will take two days to present a solution, or to give up :-)

    Super!

    It is obvious that a part of this dimension can only reliable in metal, rather than a strange combination of plastic and tiny metal add-ons.
