Need help in locating a part for LX

Hi Folks,

Recently lost the rewind shaft for my LX and cannot locate the part for sale online anywhere, I'm just wondering if anyone on here knows where I could purchase one as the camera itself is in great condition and I don't need a full service, it's just the rewind part that is needed (Please see pic attached).

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks All.

Eric will repair it for you. Not sure where you would find parts for the camera for sale given that repairmen don't usually sell the tools of their trade.

Keep an eye out for a "stripped down" LX body - usually minus viewfinder, for a more reasonable price. Good luck.

BTW, how did it go missing?

Also, in your previous post it was recommended to contact Eric. He doesn't have the parts or he doesn't sell just parts without service?

It must have just came loose and fell off. Have contacted uscamera but they no longer stock the part. Have emailed Eric and am just awaiting reply thanks all

In the picture it looks like the shaft (the shiny thing in the picture) is still there and you need the rewind knob. Generally the knob gets lost by rewinding the wrong way. If the shaft is there you can stick a small screwdriver next to the the threaded part in the middle and pry the shaft up. If you just need the rewind knob at least it is easy to see on an ebay parts camera.

That 129 doesn't seem that bad if you plan to keep the camera around. It makes for cheap insurance vs the skyrocketing prices demanded for parts or bodies.

I second the suggestion you send it to Eric. If anyone can locate the parts he can.
He can also advise you how soon an overhaul will be required.
