This is not a LF camera as such (Gaoersi 612) but it's a large format lens/shutter, so I thought this was the best forum. It's my first dabble with LF-alike cameras, so forgive me if I get some terms wrong.
I've just bought the Gaoersi 612, with a 65mm Super Angulon attached, in a Compur shutter. There is a screw hole where the cable release attached to the shutter, which is quite wobbly, and I fear it will fall off soon.
I've got an estimate from a repair shop of £189 + VAT, which seems extraordinary for a bit of wobbly metal, so I've got a few questions:
a) Anyone know of a good place I can get this looked at, and be a bit more reasonably priced?
b) Is this something I could consider fixing myself with JB Weld or something, or should I leave well alone?
Here are some links to some pictures attempting to show the problem, but I don't have a macro lens, so they're not great.
