FS / FT MAMIYA 6 iv FOLDER, PARTS CAMERAS, BOX, EVER READY CASES, INSTRUCTIONS
3 mamiya 6 iv folders , 2 leather ever-ready cases, 1 box, and 1 xeroxed instructions.
working shutter ( i have never had it cla'd and never had trouble with speeds )
glass clear no cleaning marks &C
RF viewer accurate, red dot ( double exposure prevention ) there
pressure plate present
the wind knob is not calibrated to stop correctly between frames
( will not effect mechanics of camera, there is a ruby window )
missing a strip of leatherette on body's side where back release is.
semi working condition
shutter fires, and seems accurate ( never used, cant attest to accuracy )
glass clear, no cleaning marks &C,
RF *seems* accurate ( did not test )
pressure plate present
reads " made in occupied japan " on bottom
missing knob and little frame counter
if it had these things, it might work like camera 1
it was originally sold to me as a " working and good condition camera "
standard separate from bellows
parts camera ...
ever ready cases
1 old style
1 newer style
old, not in good condition, but is a box
it is a long story of why i have 3 of these cameras.
i originally used camera 1, until the wind knob sheered off
there is a little threaded bolt that snapped off.
i sent it to a "well known and well respected" folder repair man,
and he was not able to fix it, charged me $$ and damaged the wind mechanism.
before it broke i used this camera steadily, every day for over a year.
it worked amazingly well, i can't say anything bad about it, other than
i wish i had stored it in its ever ready case !
it took about 2 years but eventually i found another camera to take parts from
and IT came with a second camera. i swapped out the bad winder for a good one.
and put film through it, and it works great ( still ! )
so now there are 3.
i originally was just going to sell 1 of these, but i realize the parts are so rare, that if
something goes wrong down the road your repair- guy won't have parts to repair it .. so i am selling it with 2 parts cameras.
please PM me with any questions, and if you feel the camera is in need of a CLA i will be happy to tell you specifically
who NOT to send it to ( from personal experience )
150 OBO + shipping+ insurance
paypal only, please split fees, i don't demand gift payments
be advised ... i don't list things as "gift" on custom's forms
if you would rather trade,
let me know what you have, maybe i am interested ...
i am in rhode island ...

if someone has a kodak bulls eye box camera, 1a slr or yashica 124mat g ( working )
i may be willing to trade
or i'll pay the difference for a working graflex 3a !

I'd love to take this lot off your hands, John, but funds is a bit tight right now, and lord knows I don't need another 6x6 camera...Good luck!

I have a working Yashica Mat 124G but the light meter isn't working but it still takes great pictures. I have been wanting a 6.
