Topic: Spare parts database
I just thought of this idea when looking at Michael's lens cap thread.
We should really a have a thread where everyone would list their broken cameras. I for one have a broken Zenit E, Zenit B and a Zorki 4 that I don't intend to put back together. Mostly due to my lazyness and partly because some parts are helplessly missing.
Back to the point... Let's say someone needed the rewind lever or the galvanometer of a Zenit E. I would have both of those parts and could send them at the price of postage costs.
Here's a list of broken cameras/lenses I wouldn't mind hacking into parts (actually, most of them are already in the form of a parts pile)
Chinon Multi-Coated 55mm f/1.7
Pentacon 135mm f/2.8
Helios 44M-4 58mm f/2
Cosina 135mm f/2.8
