WTB Calumet 4x5 back spring

Hello, I have a calumet 4x5 camera and one of the back springs to hold the ground glass and film holder is missing. Anyone have this part to sell or know a source? If you could suggest a workaround, that could also work.

Wesley,

Is it just the spring or also the lever? Do you have the other spring? If you can measure that you might be able to find a similar one online from a parts supplier.

Can you photograph both sides?

Still hoping for a reply from the other two but Will Thompson is not a source I had known about before. I shall try him, thank you.
