Does anyone make or stock replacement arms for the Focus Panel of the Super Graphic? I've got a couple of the focus panels without arms, the flat springs are still in place, and without the arms the camera itself is not useable.
I've looked at the forums, looked at google, and looked at ebay without any luck.
Thank you,
John

Contact Fred Lustig in Reno Nevada. He is in his late 80's or early 90's.
He purchased the last remaining Graflex parts stock. He will not sell you the part. If he has them he will offer to repair the focus panel for you.
Pacific Rim Camera occasionally has a complete focus panel for $$$$$$$.
Check the Related Web Sites link >commercial sites on the Home page.

With a factory equipped lens, cam, correctly adjusted infinity stops, and working rangefinder one can attach standard film holders, grafmatics, or 4x5 RFHs and create good/excellent pictures/photographs. The only thing that one cannot do is focus/compose on the ground glass. A non adjusted collection of parts can be assembled into a working camera without a focus panel, it just requires more work.

Thanks for the info, I'll contact Fred and report back on how that all goes. It seems like the Focus Panel arms are the weak point of an otherwise really wonderful camera!
