    This week I've mostly been fixing a broken 21mm viewfinder.

    I took dings out of filter rings on a 135mm Symmar, 90mm super angulon and 90mm sinaron.

    I fixed an old Gralab timer which was dirty and the hands were way out and didn't line up. After removing the hands and opening it up I cleaned the black paint and scrubbed the hands and face off with a pad. The dayglo is extremely dense and stands up to stiff scrubbing. The hands have screws that allow them to be aligned straight up. The clock timer is small and simple, no wonder it lasts for decades. I use this one for my enlarger fan.

    Today I took a Dremel to the auto-stop down flange on an M42-EOS adapter that I use on my Zeiss 35mm/f:2 ZS mount lens. The lens has a manual stop down lever on the barrel, so I can open the aperture for focusing and stop it down for the exposure. The flange depressed a pin that kept the iris stopped down all the time, which is useful for M42 lenses that don't have an external lever, but otherwise gets in the way. My M42-FD adapter doesn't have the flange.

    I did a CLA on a 135mm f/4.5 Tominon lens in a Polaroid MP4 shutter. The lens elements were filthy and the shutter was a bit sticky but not too bad. Now the glass is clear and the shutter works perfectly. The hard part was finding where I had put my spanner wrenches to take apart the elements.:rolleyes:

    Last night, I monkeyed around with a project that I've been working on for a while. A hybrid Nikkormat FT/FT3 body. FT casting and top/bottom covers with FT3 mirror box. Am getting closer to having the whole thing work. Still have to get the mirror box to fire when the shutter release is depressed, but the shutter works now. Didn't before.

    I "fixed" my Yashica mat 124 lazy shutter... the only thing I had to do was to remove the rear lens and "tick" the blades (but this is of course what I tried last, so I got the cover off, scratched the front lens ring (then lens remains untouched, so the camera is a bit uglier but still works fine).

    This camera looks like a beater but works fine...

    If non photography related stories are allowed, I also fixed some junkyard bicycles for use in my son's school... I still love to use several bikes to make one that's working. These ones are ugly, but work like a charm (they're used for some education about street policies).

    Rebuilt a Olympus 35RD shutter which had oily blades. Converted it to silver oxide battery, replaced the foam. John, www.zuiko.com
