    Zone VI 8X10 rear standard ridgidity

    I picked up a really nice Zone VI 8x10 from another forum member a few months ago. Been happy with it, but am noticing that the knobs on either side of the rear standard seem to have some play in them. I've tried positioning a screwdriver against the slotted screw head on the inside of the rear standard to tighten it up. That seems to settle it for a short time, but then things loosen up a little bit. Any thoughts on how to address this, or is there a locking washer of some sort that might make a difference? I want to get serious about working with this camera, but don't want to have to worry about the rear standard moving around on me.



    And yes, I saw the spelling error in the word rigidity in the title AFTER I posted this.

    The round spacer between the body of the camera and the arm is the nut. You have to hold that when you tighten down the screw.
