Toyo Super Graphic repair?

Bart F , Sep 07, 2006; 11:59 a.m.

Does anyone know of a good place for repair
and parts for the Toyo Super Graphic?

I'm about to send off a Crown Super Speed to
Fred Lustig for restoration, but I don't know a good place to send off a Toyo Super
which I acquired (by impulse bid on the auction site)

The differences between the Graflex and Toyo are
mostly cosmetic and perhaps metric vs english fasteners, correct?


Emails to Toyo have gotten no response so far.

It seems to work, but is missing a few things
like the wire frame peep sight and could use a CLA since the rangefinder works,
but occasionally sticks.

Hi Bart, Have you asked Fred about him repairing the Toyo Super Graphic? It might be worth a try to run it past him. I don't think that the Graflex/Toyo versions varied so much that he couldn't give the camera a good CLA. He might even have the wire frame peep sight or whatever is needed. For parts, if Fred doesn't have it then no one does, other than parts from cameras that are stripped down. He can probably get the rangefinder & electronics working again reliably; I know he did a first class job on my Super Speed a couple of years ago. Good Luck.
