So I dropped my Linhoff Technika IV and broke the four ball joint posts that extend for the swing back. I've removed the remains of the ball joints from the back and I'm using whats left of the posts to hold the back in place. The posts, coupled with the sprung clips on the side are doing an alright job but I'd like to get my rear movements back.
I've got a machinist friend who's going to take a look at it and see what he can make for me but I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find these parts. I've heard the name Marflex quite a bit but can't seem to get a hold of anyone at the number I've found. They also seem to have no web-presence.
Bonus points for anyone who can tell me what the proper name for these ball joint rods is.
