Hi,

I have a K1000 (think its a HK version), but unfortunately I've lost one of the screws from the baseplate. The base has three screws in it - two larger and one smaller (next to the battery cover).

Does anyone know where I can get a new screw from please? Or does anyone happen to know the exact specs of the screw so I can track down a replacement?

Thanks

Mark

Hi Mark, Ive used an eBay seller called pilgrim 18 for light seals etc and I know he sells packs of screws for cameras I think they are about 5.00 per pack, it might be worth getting in touch with him, hope this is of some help.

Thanks John.

I actually managed to get one from Jem at The Real Camera Shop in Manchester. As I had taken my K1000 in there a few months ago to have the light seals checked I can't believe I didn't think of asking Jem first!

Supplied and shipped all the way to Singapore for just 4!
