    3 mamiya 6 iv folders , 2 leather ever-ready cases, 1 box, and 1 xeroxed instructions.

    camera 1
    working condition,
    working shutter ( i have never had it cla'd and never had trouble with speeds )
    glass clear no cleaning marks &C
    RF viewer accurate, red dot ( double exposure prevention ) there
    pressure plate present

    the wind knob is not calibrated to stop correctly between frames
    ( will not effect mechanics of camera, there is a ruby window )
    missing a strip of leatherette on body's side where back release is.

    ============

    camera 2

    semi working condition
    shutter fires, and seems accurate ( never used, cant attest to accuracy )
    glass clear, no cleaning marks &C,
    RF *seems* accurate ( did not test )
    pressure plate present
    leather intact
    reads " made in occupied japan " on bottom

    missing knob and little frame counter
    if it had these things, it might work like camera 1

    it was originally sold to me as a " working and good condition camera "
    ===========

    camera 3

    missing lens,
    standard separate from bellows
    parts camera ...

    ever ready cases
    1 old style
    1 newer style

    box
    old, not in good condition, but is a box


    it is a long story of why i have 3 of these cameras.
    i originally used camera 1, until the wind knob sheered off
    there is a little threaded bolt that snapped off.
    i sent it to a "well known and well respected" folder repair man,
    and he was not able to fix it, charged me $$ and damaged the wind mechanism.
    before it broke i used this camera steadily, every day for over a year.
    it worked amazingly well, i can't say anything bad about it, other than
    i wish i had stored it in its ever ready case !

    it took about 2 years but eventually i found another camera to take parts from
    and IT came with a second camera. i swapped out the bad winder for a good one.
    and put film through it, and it works great ( still ! )
    so now there are 3.

    i originally was just going to sell 1 of these, but i realize the parts are so rare, that if
    something goes wrong down the road your repair- guy won't have parts to repair it .. so i am selling it with 2 parts cameras.

    please PM me with any questions, and if you feel the camera is in need of a CLA i will be happy to tell you specifically
    who NOT to send it to ( from personal experience ) :whistling:

    150 OBO + shipping+ insurance
    paypal only, please split fees, i don't demand gift payments
    be advised ... i don't list things as "gift" on custom's forms

    if you would rather trade,
    let me know what you have, maybe i am interested ... :wink:

    If someone is interested in #1 but not 2 and 3, let me know. My budget is far below 150$ but I like projects. :smile:
