All the parts are there -- I more or less put it back together -- but I'm not going to be able to fix it and the FPS does not work.

    I don't really use it any more but I feel bad for wrecking its function. Everything else works, just not the rear shutter. Before I wrecked it I wanted to explore barrel lenses. I don't care so much now but whoever wants to use it after me might.

    Is this an easy fix for a professional? Should I bother throwing money into a repair?

    I was thinking of just selling it as is if it sounded like the repair was too much.

    email bert, he will be able to help you
    Last year, the shutter on my just acquired 4"x5" Graflex Model D tore. I emailed Bert on graflex.org, just as jnanian said. Bert walked me step by step repairing the shutter and adjusting the shutter speed via email. Bert is a retired Graflex and Graphic repairman with over 26 years experience in the job. For years he repaired the cameras after he retired. He is definitely the go to man for your problem.

    HAHAHA

    Are you single now because you were giving it too much of your partial attention? Sounds like how my last several relationships ended.

    Next time take a Holley 4 barrel carburetor apart and put it back together as a warm up procedure, then dive into the shutter.

    Us guys that brag about what we can take apart and put together are like slot machine gamblers who brag about all the money they won but never seem to mention how much they contributed to the palace they're standing in.
