Pin for Ultra sled topstage?

Recommended Posts

I noticed some left-right play in the top stage of my Ultra Cine sled and then discovered the culprit could be a missing pin of some kind about the size of paper clip. It appears there should be three but the front one is gone. Any idea what these are? Where can get some kind of replacement?

If Tiffen doesn't have replacements, it looks like they are just dowel pins. You may be able to get a set of calipers on the one that is sticking out of your sled to measure it. Once you know the size you should be able to find a replacement on Mcmaster: https://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-dowel-pins/=1bwsqqy

Scott- the post and the arcs are pinned and glued together.

 

If there's shifting, I'd send the two back to Burbank for a re-pinning and gluing - if that's possible. Contact Joe Wilbur
