    The reason I asked is I am currently repairing my own shutter on the same camera.
    the difference with mine is that I have both curtains but the tapes have broken.
    i have found as close as I can get to the tapes to replace them and will be gluing, sewing, praying very soon.

    the major task I had yesterday was removing the bottom of the camera box to get at the rollers.

    i really want to take a picture with this camera. I plan to cut down some 5x4 film to fit it.

    when it's rebuilt that is.

    still a way off yet.

    What format is your Ensign. I have film & plate holders for mine which is Quarter plate although it came with a Rollex 6x9 back, I also found a box of new quarter plate film sheaths plus two more and 4 conversion film sheaths in a 9x12 box. Film is available on the Ilford ULF run and also from Wephoto (much cheaper).

    Mine is a quarter plate.

    I have a plate holder, the next problem will be getting film of some description sorted out.

    if I can sort these tapes out.
