A Question for the MacGyvers here...
I just got a Ricohflex VIIs in the mail today. It has one problem:
The little pin that bites into the 120 film spool is broken off. All that's left is the circular bolt. It looks like this O (without the pin going through it, but the slot is there where the pin should go, rather than this ø with the pin going through it. Does anyone have any ideas for a fix?
I thought about putting something inside the spool itself, and just using the same takeup spool each time (or similarly modify several spools at once). The question is, what could I put inside the spool that would be rigid enough? And, where can I get this material?
Thanks for any ideas gentlemen!
