    Anniversary Graphic Repair

    I don't much care for working on Anniversary graphics but I find myself needing to separate the bellows from the front standard. Is there a trick I'm missing or are they glued together?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Someone here must have worked on one of these at one time...

    Just sent you the Anni sevice manual--it details bellows removal.

    Barry,

    Thanks. A very useful reference to have - the shutter info might come in handy on an RB Graflex I need to work on. I felt around inside the front standard and didn't feel the screws (which is why this thread started) but I'll need to look again more carefully (I'll need to pull out the shutter curtain - its frozen in closed position)

    Thanks,
    Dan

    The shutter's quite straight forward Dan, I cleaned, serviced and re-light proofed the one on my pre-Anniversary Speed Graphic 2 or 3 years ago. They are reasonably logical and I'd finished mine before finding a manual.

    Barry would it be possible if I could get a copy of that as well. I just had my anny shipped to Japan where I am at from the states and the shutter is not working anymore. I don't know what happened to the thing but the shutter button at the lens got bent. I have no idea how this could have happened because my wife doesn't even know how to open the graphic up to get to it. I am beginning to wonder if somebody opened my box along the way.

    Weird, but it probably got banged up in shipment. Forwarded the manual to your email.

    Another question, are there instructions to calibrate a Kalart RF for a Speed Graphic?
