    Hello,

    Is there anybody who could help me with a used Compur # 2 shutter? While cleaning one of my shutters I broke one of the iris blades which are made from a specially treated hard paper.

    If somebody would sell me spare parts only, it would be also fine.

    Looking forward in your replies.

    Best regards
    Matthias

    This is how such a blade should look like:

    You may have better luck finding a similar shutter which is not working.

    You could probably get a machinist to make one for you as well.
