    Ebony Camera Replacement Parts

    I need to purchase a replacement knob for my Ebony 4x5 camera. I contacted BG and they said the part is no longer available. Does anyone know if the manufacture of Ebony Cameras in Japan still sell parts and how to contact them? Has anyone recently had any success contacting them. The knurled knob I need is for the SV45, the one that locks the bellows frame to the body. I know there are similar SS ones on EB that I could easily modify to work; however, it would be nice to have a matching factory titanium knob to maintain the cameras value. Thx for your assistance!

    Just heard from Jeff at BG that the part I am looking for is no longer available from the factory either. Thank you Jeff for the answer. So I guess it's time to try and make one from a ss knob on EB. I guess I had better make two so at least they will match!

    In case the question comes up again: Hiromi Sakanashi retired and closed the Ebony Camera business in 2016.
