Vintage Owner, User, Service and Parts Manuals

Photographic * Darkroom * Projector * Micrographic * Office Machines

Our small operation, run by James ‘Tex’ Smock, specializes in parts and accessories for photographic, studio and darkroom equipment, projectors, micrographic equipment, electronic and test equipment, educational and audio visual equipment. Most of our items are used parts and accessories from salvaged equipment, although we do have a few new parts. We also have some new old stock projector and specialty bulbs and photocopies of many hard to find owner’s manuals and service and parts manuals. Although most of our parts are used, we guarantee them to be fully functional. In fact we always guarantee you full satisfaction on any purchase.

Email Us with any questions.


Our business is strictly an internet business, we are not set up for customers to come and look at items. We are also on the run a lot and not always near a phone, so we would rather do business by email. We try to answer emails as quickly as we can, but sometimes it takes a day or two to get caught up.
