Older Compur cable release recepter?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

These seem to be somewhat fragile on older Compur shutters. I have no less than 3 Compur shutters with missing cable release receptors. They were originally "swedged" at the base to hold them in place, and I suppose a good sharp fall must dislodge them. 1 is Compound, one is #2, and one is everyday #1.

Does anyone know of a source for replacements. OR Can anyone guide me to a source for the unique wedge shaped tap that would be required if I was to make my own?

Thanks and Happy New Year to all.
