    Sinar Alpina rail bits

    Sinar Alpia rail bits

    <strike>I got a Sinar Alpina but the little cylindrical bits that are pressed between the rail knob and rail to tighten the standards forward/back movements are missing. I think, but am not sure they were 4.5mm in diameter. Reaching out for replacements has been unsuccessful. At the moment I am trying to insert torque pins in place with little luck.
    </strike>

    Got it fixed!

    Thank you, Neil! Glenn was the very first person I contacted and he did not answer which probably means he could not help, he had no such part. Glenn has been very helpful in the past and I am accustomed to his responses. What I finally did was to find among a bunch of tension pins two that fit perfectly but did not offer the sliding quality of the nylon pins which is fine with my application (47mm XL) on a shortened rail for rear focusing.

    Again, thank you.
