thanks zacks !
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 ...
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, 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 !
hahaha-- whew-- dont you just hate when $h!t happens! Good thing you have a repair shop close by.
yeah, i hate when my true clutz rears its sheepish grin ..
