    I got rid of that pesky clicking on the aperture ring on my 50/1.7 Minolta lens... oh, wait... *D'OH!!!*

    Man, that little ball bearing was tiny. It's probably no more than two feet away from me right now, but nowhere in sight.

    Bummer. Can't tell you how many times I have been in that situation myself (usually its tiny screws)!

    Done that. Found the bearing, but the little spring ended up mangled beyond repair.

    I have two flashguns for my Speed Graphic. The 7" reflector works with both of them. The NOS 5" reflector only worked with the Graflite gun. I found that the pin of the 5" reflector was not making contact with the spring. I found a metal sleeve [spring steel rolled into a tube with the edges slightly apart] and used a small grinder to cut a short piece. I slid the sleeve over the end of the contact and now both reflectors work with both flashguns.

    You're going to have to explain that one!

    EDIT: OK, I know what you mean now!

    Purchased 2 Mamiya RB67 lenses last week. Both are 127mm

    One lens was $13, and the other $14. They were ugly.

    Completely tore one down lens/shutter and rebuilt is last night. It is now CLA'd.

    I start the other one tonight.

    I love having the 127mm. Great lenses. They were rated ugly at KEH, because of their condition, but the glass was pristine. Got to love a great bargain !
