    Compur Shutter repairs

    I need to do some work on a Compur Rapid shutter, mounted in a Bessa. I have already cleaned the shutter blades, but it seems I will have to go into the gears. Therefore, I need the assembly charts, as detailed as possible. Does anyone have a hint ? Thanks in advance ! Wouter

    repair manual

    Wouter,
    if you do a Google with 'compur rapid' and 'repair', you would come up with links like this:

    http://manuals4less.com/shutters.htm

    where you can get a booklet for the rapid shutter for $10

    which on the one hand is a rip off, but on the other would be a great help. We bought a copy of a Linhof 220 exploded view for $25 some place else, but it was well worth it.

    Or try here:

    http://rick_oleson.tripod.com/index-88.html

    but rick discusses the compur shutter only, not the rapid kind! Still, it might be useful.

    Good luck!

    Thanks. I of course did the google search and some sites came up. None however offers detailed charts for downloading, free. One has some pictures but isn“t detailed enough. If nothing comes up I“ll buy one.

    There is a copy online here

    Don't be put off by the front page being in french - The manual it's self is a series of jpeg scans of a 1966 manual.

    Paul,

    I tried to print the manual at the link you gave, but all I get there is the first page. How do I print the rest of the manual?

    It isn't a pdf document, so I guess you'd have to display the page(s) you want and print each one individually.
