    Replacement springs for Toyo-View D45M ?

    Hi LF forum folks,
    There sure is lots of really good info here - I have been reading a ton - thank you for sharing.
    My first post.
    I just purchased a Toyo-view 4x5 mono-rail camera - looks like a D45M
    - complete package, including help from a very experienced photographer and use of his enlarger and dark room
    - it has been a ton of fun, getting back into home development (so far just tray developing the negatives)

    The camera is old, but in good condition.
    Except: the spring back (ground glass holder) does not spring back tight to the camera - the springs seem a bit weak (old)
    I can hod the GG tight with a slight pressure with the hand held magnifier
    The spring back does hold the film cassette tightly - no light leaks

    These springs are multiple leaf - 2 leaf on one end and 3 leaf on the other - looks a bit tricky to manufacture.

    I'm trying to contact toyoview.com but the emails don't work, and the "contact us" form fails.
    Looks like toyoview.uk still works, but I haven't heard back from them yet.

    Does anyone know if this type of spring is available anywhere?

    The camera works - but it would be nice to have this tighter.

    Thanks for any help you can offer

    Regards

    Jim

    I've found it more productive to call Toyo.

    Thanks gypsydog,
    The site does not list a phone number - only lists a fax.
    I'll need to find a fax machine
