    Does anyone know how to remove the focus knob on the 150/110 models? I want to add a new covering on the camera, and hoping that I do not have to take apart the focus mechanism to do this.

    You have to take out the bed to get at the nut. It is only four screws from memory but don't bend the rangefinder connector arm which is at the end of the bed on the viewfinder side. Your best bet would be to remove the retaining ring at the back of the shutter and remove the little U ring that holds the rangefinder connector arm to the bed. Once you do that you can take out the bed, shutter and all. Don't lose the little washers though.

    First off Patrick welcome to APUG, lots of helpful folks here. And you told me what I feared it would take to remove the knob. I have one ready to be assembled for my daughter but wanted to do hers with a thin denim covering I found.
    Thanks
