    B&J does use rack and pinion focusing, but the knobs are silver or black colored. Wooden knobs could look classy on a wooden camera, and are lighter than brass. Smaller knobs might work well enough on a fine pitch rack and pinion.

    Jim,

    Thanks for the info. I have considered wooden knobs, but thought I'd try to locate brass ones first. BTW, Where in NW Missouri are you located? I'm in Kansas City, near the airport, and I'm always interested in finding other large format shooters.

    Dave

    Dave (Williams), I live near Chillicothe, about 75 miles east of St. Joseph. I'm a member of the Wyandotte Camera Club http://wyandottecameraclub.org/main/, and get into Kansas City every month for that. The web site is under reconstruction, and has little information at the moment.

    Small world, Jim. My wife is from Bosworth, just south of there. I had a chance to take the one hour photo manager job at the new Wal-Mart there, but company realignment happened before I could do it.

    I grew up in Wyandotte County, but never attended the camera club there. I belong to a stereo photography club that meets in Lawrence. Maybe I'll drop in to meet you one meeting.

    Jim, I just checked the club website. It meets next week, the 14th. I can probably make that. Where do you meet? What do people usually bring? Cameras, prints, digital images?

    Oops! just clicked on the date and the other location info came up. I know where the library is, I spent hours there each week when I lived over near there. I remember the photo exibits from the club on the walls. I probably know some of the local members.

    David,

    My two cents worth - give Jim Andraki (sic) a call at Midwest Photo in Columbus OH. He helped me out with some knobs for my Zone VI (Tachihara). Great servoce and fast delivery.

    I'm surprised you came up dry on Mcmaster. This page shows larger ones. The first number in the table is the thread size.

    If you can use something compatible with a Deardorff, Barry has bins of various knobs and parts in stock (I've seen them!).
