    I need to make a new cloth shutter for my FED-2, seems to be a later model of it. What material do I use and where do I get it? There was a website that had all this info and I can't find it, I found it when I did the first CLA.

    Micro-Tools use to sell shutter curtain material. Probably still does.

    Just for giggles I looked up Fedka to see if they have the material.....they have NOS shutters for the FED series. I think I'm going to go that route if nothing turns up.

    Aki-Asahi also has shutter curtain material and ribbon. I rebuilt several FED shutters with it without complaint.
