  • Um...Hello?
First time poster/noob.  I managed to lose one of the spring-loaded plungers which are used to transfer presses of the graflex faux-circuit board to the momentary aux switch.  :cry:  I’ve kludged together a temporary fix using some parts on my workbench; however, I’d like to replace it with the proper plunger.

Two questions: 1) What is the proper part name for the spring-loaded plunger, and 2) is there a source for such a replacement part?

Thanks!

You need to post pictures. The graflex circuit board solutions that I have used do not use springs, just printed holders...the Anakin Ep2 uses plungers and springs.

If you’re using stuff from imgbb.com, you have to use the BBcode link.




I find your arguments vague and unconvincing.

Quiet! *Slap* And there’s a fresh one if you mouth off again.
