View Full Version : Off-the-shelf source of Pocket Gowland Focus rails

The focusing rail on my Gowland got some deformation in it somehow making it really hard to focus in certain places on the rail. Is the focusing rail on the Gowland a off-the-shelf part? It seems very similar to the Keyed Drive Shafts at Mc-Master Carr but I can't find anything identical.

You might try calling Alice Gowland. At the time Peter passed away he was still selling off remaining stock of cameras and parts. It's clear that someone is maintaining his website - some of the pages have been updated - so perhaps it's still possible to order parts.
