    large format focal plane shutter curtain care

    I've recently purchased a Folmer and Schwing #3A Graflex that has a focal plane shutter.I'm wondering what steps I should take and what materials to use to keep this curtain in good operating condition.

    Thanks,

    Doug

    Go over to graflex.org, register, and look through the help threads. Those folks are the experts. If you don't see what you're looking for, ask them. They are very helpful.

    I am corresponding with Bert Saunders and following his instructions. I have been collecting and editing everything he writes. I have patched the curtain, adjusted the tension and now I am working on getting the "O" aperture centered. The pin in the H level is part way out but it will not move. When I have completed the repair and I am sure the instructions are both correct and clear, I will ask Bert to read and correct it before posting.
