    i have a thing for old cameras
    some really old ones from the 1800s,
    and some newer old ones from the 1930s ..
    about a year and half ago i bought a rolleicord on ebay
    it was a 1a type 3 ...
    it was advertised as a user, all speeds are accurate
    and after a few emails with the seller, to verify what might and might
    not be OK he assured me all was good so i transfered my $$ from paypal to him.
    it arrived a few days later and was not really in the condition as advertised.
    the shutter didn't work, the winding mechanism was locked up too
    and when i tried to contact him he ignored my emails so i got a refund from paypal
    and offered if he pay the shipping, to send it back to him ... what did i need a broken camera for ...

    well
    zack's camera repair fixed my camera, the shutter and wind mechanism worked perfectly !
    and i used it on and off for about a year ...
    usually when i get my oil changed i bring a camera with me and walk around the neighborhood of the dealership
    and a few weeks ago i brought the rollei ...
    i had the satchel on the ground and lifted it to get up, and unfortunately the sweet rollei rolled out of the bag onto the floor :sad:
    sad, cranky and wishful and totted the camera to zacks ..
    and picked it up yesterday
    it may have survived ww2
    it may have survived storage in a basement
    it may have survived freight to my house ...

    and thanks to zacks, it will survive ME

    zacks does great work, thanks zacks !
