    I second David's suggestion of the metronome (we trombone players have to stick together). I use one all the time in the field with my large format rigs. I use an electronic one, set it to 120, and set it so it has two different pitches for each half second. I like that method so much, I use it even with my lenses in shutter for long exposures.

    I have an old " Heavy Duty Betax no.2 shutter - speeds are 1/25, 1/4,1/2, 1, B+T- that's it

    pretty slow- I'm not sure why there are no faster speeds

The Lubitel 2 has speeds above 1/15 and the Komsomolets has speeds above 1/25, and I want something slower. My idea was to take a working shutter from a dead camera and connect it to a cable release (no electronics involved); Iím not looking for a very high degree of precision, but Iím not so experienced (yet) as to be able to keep a shutter open within the range of speeds I mentioned. My options seem to be either a) find/build a device to do it or b) spoil a lot of film while I learn to do it on my own ...
    Thanks again

    Buy an ex-oscilloscope camera Ilex #3 Universal shutter. These are often offered on eBay. Clean and adjust it. Don't lubricate, they are made to run dry. Hold it in front of your TLR's taking lens. Fire the TLR's shutter on "B" with a locking cable release. Then fire the Ilex. Then close the TLR's shutter.

    I've just looked at my crappy old Lubitel 2, this should be possible but not much fun.

    But on the whole you'd be better off with a better camera that had a fully-speeded shutter.

    Thanks
    I think your Ilex 3 Universal shutter suggestion may help me. I'll follow that direction.
    Regards
