I would caution against trying to take cameras apart. Take it to a repairer who has the tools, knowledge and experience to do it properly. They also check timings and metering.

There are some resources here, and also look at the video tab.

Presumably you mean the quick release plate. Have a look on Ebay, or try the rummage box at your local friendly camera dealer.

Kalimar are no longer in business so you can't return it to them I'd take it to a local repair shop and get a quote.

If someone is selling this "old" lens, you should ask him (her) what kind of mount it has. These lenses are made for different brands. Most of the time you also can buy an adapter to fit it on your camera. No problem most adapters don't give trough the AF info, because this lens is an manual focus lens. More interesting is to know if your camera can work with manual lenses. Because most of the time you also have to set everything by hand. Like aperture shutter time and so on. So check the manual if it can, to avoid disappointment after you bought this thing. Also read what others think about this lens.

Is this a question?

Don't know but I just bought a kalimar 135mm f2.8 lens on eBay and it has a threaded mount that is not T mount and is not M42 mount? I am hoping there is an adapter somewhere out there as it seems like a very well made Japanese lens! If you figure it out let me know?

I have the same issue as Mike, above - same tripod, lost the platform for the camera. Anyone have a spare camera platform for this particular tripod they can sell?

With the proper T-mount adapter this lens will fit just about any camera, film or digital, with an interchangeable lens. However you will not get autofocus, and most likely will lose the camera's autoexposure capabilities as well.
