    Could you share this file with me? SKG is requesting it.

    Do or do not. There is no try.

    Has SK" Grimes made a quote on fabricating a retaining ring?

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

    Still waiting to hear. They have the DXF file, and according to USPS tracking, my Travelwide and it's broken pieces arrived in Woonsocket this morning. Should be hearing soon, I'll be sure to update as soon as I know anything.

    Still nothing. They emailed me yesterday, apologized for the delay. Something about outsourcing to a specific machine that is currently out of order. It could be awhile.

    Please keep us up-dated oln this.

    I have a TW with the same repair issue. I would guess that there are others out there too. No sense in sending it in if they are still working on a fix.

    Cheers

    Re: TravelWide Repair Question

    Are we talking about a jam-nut or a lens flange? Chances are that TravelWide's part is standard and easily replaced with a steel part. If not a jam-nut or flange, then what is it, please? Any snapshots available?

    If it is some unscheduled odd part, then Glen at http://www.glennview.com/ might help.

    These parts mount to the inside of the camera with very small screws and the screw eyelets get broken when there's too much friction with the helical.

    Thank you, Jon. I had no idea. Crazy engineering. Certainly a metallic replacement is in order. They appear symmetric, so only one part duplicated is necessary - no?
