    I fixed a Yashica Lynx 1000 with aperture problems. Took the whole lens apart and found a bent diaphragmblade. The whole fix took me two days!
    What a drag! Founding out what the positions are of the blades and the same thing with the shutterblades! Its a japanees made Compur Shutter, Beautiful!
    At this moment I have to look at the slowtimes 1/8 to 1 sec They seem to be mixed up. Getting back in there today.

    Various vendors online such as eBay or through surplus channels may have similar screws (you can search lens/optical screws for smaller sized ones). In the past you supposedly could order any part from Nikon, but not so now. Your other alternative is to buy a non functioning body and strip for screws and keep for parts. Or drop by a repair place and see if they have a tin of extras lying around for you to take a few.

    Fixed 4x5 RB Model B shutter curtain I broke yesterday while soaking with furniture polish. Running dripping wet shutter is not the best idea, the curtain broke on 3/4 window.
    Two strips of silk ribbon and Gütermann HT2 glue. Appears to be running fine.

    "Fixed" EOS 620 by disconnecting faulty LCD backlight, still no backlight but at least 2CR5s last longer that a day.

    I fixed my air conditioner. It was a blown Run Capacitor. The house is cooling down nicely now.
    $10.41 versus a $200 repair.

    Darn, the only thing I "fixed" was a roll of Neopan 100 Acros, 120. On a roll (pardon) three rolls THIS week! Two 120 (TMX100 120 and the NEOPAN) and one roll of TRI-X. Guess I should fix something mechanical ... I'll get around to "that" one of these days..
    I'd much rather be developing film and working around the house.
