Hi Everybody,
Have a nice Crown Graphic (version with TOP RangeFinder) with two missing screws that hold the bottom of the Flash Mounting Bracket to the camera body. The Flash Mounting Bracket is just above the Body Release. Anyone know of a SOURCE for "correct" size replacement (original or new) scres? Anybody know the dimesions? These are flathead screws of a very fine pitch apparently. I haven't a clue of what to ask of a specialty provider. Any information or a source would be helpful. Midwest and Shuart advised me to go to a specialty hardware store. Most of the help there have been clueless. I live in Oakland, California. Thanks a lot!!!

The Pacemaker Graphic Partlist I have calls them a 4-40x5/16" oval head screw.

Chances are you won't find them 5/16" but probably 3/8", the file them down.

reference only: Section 7 p22.(replacement page 5/65) fig 1; part 1d, Part Number 104-4R5C

4-40 is a common size in model railroad work. Check your local well-stocked hobby shop and chances are very good you'll find what you're looking for.

Thanks Henry,
Will seek out a model railroad shop. I collect old kerosene railroad lanterns, so will be a pleasure to visit such a place. Thanks for your help!
