I loaded a roll of film in the SL66 today and made an exposure. The shutter seemed to fire and when I tried to turn the crank to advance, it had a lot of resistance. I stopped without forcing it and removed the back. The curtain is halfway up and has a small vertical tear in it. I did not force it but I think something caught on the cloth curtain. What a bummer...... I called Harry Fleenor at Oceanside Camera Repair and have it all ready to mail out..Harry's name has been mentioned on the net and I wanted someone familar with the SL66.
