    Where does one buy lighter fluid? I assume you mean cigarette lighter fluid, not charcoal lighter fluid.

    I use charcoal lighter fluid (it is cheaper) and NOW, at this time of the year especially, it is easy to buy. Put some in a smaller squeeze bottle so it will be easier to squirt.

    And, of course, as you stated in post #20, make certain that there are NO loose screws. - David Lyga

    Zippo brand,but,depending on your market..Rizla ,or..anything. Should be labelled "Petroleum Spirit -1271 ", and come in a metal can with a sealable spout.

    Well the shutter has been cleaned as best I could, and reassembled. I took the camera with that lens for a test run today - the negatives look good! Thanks all for your helpful advice.

    As far as 1/125, 1/250, 1/500 'looking all the same'...do this: in a dim room hold the lens so that it faces a white piece of paper. Because of the dimness, that paper will not be too bright and where your eye is, is even dimmer. Look through the lens (eyes about 12 inches away from the lens): fire at open aperture at all three fast speeds. You should see a marked difference with brightness in this way.

    In full room light they tend to 'look all the same' but with 'just enough' light coming through and with your viewing area dim (so that extraneous light does not get in the way), there should be a difference. - David Lyga
