    The gear train for the winder is the weakest point for the whole 6x7 family, so if there is any doubt about the winding action don't buy it. I have been told that the damage is often done by people who try to replicate the quick jerk they use to wind a 35mm camera as fast as possible. The much greater drag of the 120 film means the gears get a bigger initial force applied to them when winding that way. The correct technique is a smooth action with constant force.
