    Pentax ME super.
    Advance lever kept going and going and going.
    Removed the bottom cover. Bent a black lever clockwise (too much). Then bent it back a little counter clockwise.
    Perfect!

    Developed and fixed a couple of contact sheets, then drilled and mounted a retaining ring on a Plaubel lens board to take a Kodak 305mm Portrait Lens in a No 5 Universal Shutter.

    Installed new 'gas pumps' (I do not know the right name in English, do you?) holding up the back door of my Volvo station-wagon, fixing the problem of 'the dropping trapdoor'.
    The other thing I recently fixed was a d***l issue, but not of any importance here...

    Freed up a shutter from a ~1937 Rolleicord. B doesn't work yet, and the aperture ring adjuster thing is out of adjustment, but I'll dive back in sometime today.

    I took out my spanner wrench and disassembled an old zoom lens. Cleaned all the elements, lubricated the moving parts and reassembled it. Just like brand new after 25 years.
