    Sources for parts for very old lenses

    Where is a good source for parts for large format lenses? I am not seeking screws or springs and stuff... Just a faceplate for a 105 Ektar. There must be a treasure trove of stuff tucked away someplace.

    Re: Large Format lens parts..

    my guess is to find a donor with other issues on eBay

    I see worn out lens in antique shops fairly often - but buying them because someone MIGHT want a part would be a real gamble

    The Rev. Stephan Cooper the Shutterbug Guy has stuff like that on Ebay. Not long ago I bought some retaining rings for a fair price. He knows what he is looking at.
