    Hello All,
    I have a Compur shutter with one hanging shutter blade which may or may not have a broken pin. I also have a Compound shutter that is broken but the shutter blades are all in good shape. Could I possibly take one of the shutter leaves from the Compound and replace the broken one in the Compur?
    Are they close in size? Can the Compound leaf be shaped to fit the Compur?
    Thanks for your help.
    Arthur

    I think that's line asking can you take a connecting rod from a Chevy to fix your Ford.

    This probably buy easy to do, and if bet you'll end up wrecking both.
