    Kodak Retina Reflex S - Anyone have a parts list?

    I just picked up a few boxes of NOS Retina Reflex S parts, that has everything from a new meter, new prism assembly, to un-used body casting. Each part is in either an envelope with the part number, or the original Kodak box. My only problem is I can't find a parts list or exploded view to try and figure out if a) everything is there to build one, or b) what parts I have or am missing.

    So on the outside chance that someone has a digital copy, (or a printed one they'd be willing to sell), let me know. I think it would be fun to build a brand new camera (not that I need one).

    Don't know what your capability is but I have a reflex s and think it is a mechanical nightmare and I suspect making the set up adjustments will be even harder than assembly. If you want this camera why not try and do a deal with one of the few techies for this camera left out there like Chris Sherlock in nz? There are many non working examples out there and I guess few spares.

    I was actually thinking of contacting him, and seeing if he would be interested in the lot. As cool as building a camera would be, it may be a daunting task that I'd never complete. I'm not 100% sure that I have all the parts to make a camera, but it looks like I'd be close.

    Chris is a great guy. When I got my S it wouldn't latch at the end of the cocking stroke. Chris told me where the very-difficult-to-find adjustment screw is under the prism on the "camshaft" that takes up the slack in the gear train, with a warning that if you take the adjustment too far the train bottoms out and usually something breaks.......It's a cool camera though, and the kodak lenses are excellent.

    If you'd like to see what the inside of a Reflex S looks like, then look here.. http://retinarescue.com/reflexsstripdown.html

    I started work on this particular project some time ago, but I've just restarted, and hopefully I'll have time to complete the pages this Xmas break.

    Regards, Chris
