    I will have to investigate further, maybe it was taken apart then reinstalled upside down or something, btw is the writing embossed or just painted on?

    Looks like it's screen printed on. Letraset might do a good job...

    For what it's worth, I am a bit worried about camera shake when using the rear shutter, so I tend to use the front shutter only.

    I can still operate the front shutter on the lens with a cable release, its just odd that its firing the rear focal plane shutter in the down position, ive just tried to move the slider by pressing down on it, ive used all my weight on it and its not moving at all, does the focal plane shutter need to be cocked before swapping to the front one?

    Edit - I have just emailed the seller, basically what he thinks might have happened is that the switch has moved in transit and is now out of sync, ie its slipped 1 place so that the slider is in the 'down' position but its actually on the 'middle' position - it also means I can't go down any more to set to the front lens.

    Thank you so much for that, I can see the amount of force you need (or don't need) to move it, it sounds like my slider has slipped and needs resetting.

    Got one last month, to "jump" to LF photography. Full of used marks but working fine (besides the rf not being calibrated). The only thing I find to dislike the camera is that it is all black (and without the "trip/brack/front letters also !?). Kind a like the black/silver ones (has the images and videos of this thread).
    Just a question about the M.O. of the camera. When one is using the focal plain shutter to take the picture, one has to have the lens shutter in T, right?

    For instructions go to www.graflex.org and http://www.butkus.org/chinon/graflex.htm. Remember to send in $3 if you download from the last site so that it will be there for us tomorrow.

    Already done that, It's a site that should be always online until the end of times!

    Rhodes - You are correct, the front shutter must be on T so it is open at all times when using the rear shutter. It works the other way around too. When using the front shutter, the rear shutter must be set to O. You still must remember to set the f-stop lever to shooting aperture when using either shutter. Lots to remember!

    mitch - I wonder if your camera has been repainted with black crackle paint and the original lettering has been painted over? It does sound like there may be something internal keeping the selector switch from moving. It may be fairly easy to take the cover off the side of the camera and check, but you should probably review one of the online Pacemaker repair manuals first.

    When that selector lever sticks, it may just need to be lubricated. A drop or two of oil and gently try to work the selector a few times will sometimes be all that is needed to put it right.
