    Does any one know where I can get some information on how to fix/maintain LF lens shutter?
    My Copal #1 shutter of Rodenstock Sironar-N 210mm is playing up. Slow speeds below 1/15 sound not right.
    Thanks

    And thanks for that. I had seen it before but couldn't find it. I need to put a loose shutter blade back into my Synchro Compur 00 and this shows how to take it apart (I think). I had a look last night opening up the front but decided that was not the right route and put it back together again quickly before anything sprung itself across the room!

    I think I have to remove the aperture selection and MXV selection mechanisms and unscrew the back. I was hoping to see some clearance holes to line up so their removal is not necessary but I couldn't see them. I will have another go tonight.


    Steve.

    Go slowly and carefully. I'm having 'fun' with the Synchro Compur 00 for my Super Angulon at the moment. That manual is very useful but I'm still having issues with the shutter.

    Cheers Steve,
    I've done some basic CLA on small format cameras but this looks much trickier.
    If I stuff up it's only a small loss.

    Ah, the price of an education is priceless.

    It wasn't working when you started so the worst that can happen is it still doesn't work.
