I had tried to sell my Nikon FE, but a girl jammed the shutter in 2 days. A year later I was dusting it off and googled to see if its an easy fix, as Tempe Camera said $180 for cleaning/fix. I noticed the stripped screws at the bottom, I removed 1, and had to bend off the base plate to pull it off fully. I was able to re-cock the shutter and testing its movement it is working good. I reattached half the bottom with 1 screw, and next I'm looking for a FE owner with spare parts. Anyone on APUG have the bottom and 2 unstripped screws?
PS: Lesson learned do no sell used manual stuff to young inexperienced females
