Have you called Optex? You'd expect them to be expensive, but when I broke the upper spar on my Steadicam JR a couple of years ago (camera with folded steadicam was on a tripod which someone knocked over, and the spar took most of the impact, grr!) they sold me a replacement spar for a fiver.

AFAIR their web site is www.optexint.com.

Wow, You got a good deal for a fiver!

I already have contacted optex and they were trying to sell me one trim control for something like £50.

It was a while back, but i remember saying i wasn't going to pay that much for a small plastic piece. Thanks anyway, though!

Someone has contacted me with an offer, so I'll see how it goes!

Cheers,
James
