    I bought a Kodak 3A Panoram that's otherwise working right, but needs one of the push-pull peg assemblies for the bottom of the take-up spool. Some prior owner made a very makeshift replacement, which was very resourceful, but had the takeup spool running crooked and wobbly, which proves to be very destructive to the 122 backing paper. That's a show-stopper, since 122 backing paper is very hard to source.

    So does someone have the carcass of a 3A that they can remove one of those from? The post and surrounding collar are held in by two tabs bent over inside the camera. Removal should be very easy. I'd gladly provide compensation.

    I'm also working on adapting a post and collar from a 3A Folding Pocket Kodak, but it's not exactly the same, and will need to be shimmed out to the right diameter. That gives some risk of imperfect location, and I know the location needs to be dead-on.
