    Problem with shutter release on

    my Crown Graphic 23 with Supermatic shutter assy. When using a remote cable release, and on B, the shutter release lever is obstructed by the barrel that screws into the shutter. It will open the shutter, but when I try to depress it to close, the release
    cable barrel won't allow the shutter lever to trip. I hope this message is clearer to you than it looks to me . Is there an extension to move the cable further out from the shutter? Any input is appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Gerry

    I forgot to add, that all other speeds work OK with the cable.

    Maybe using another shutter release cable with a thinner profile?

    Derek,
    I've tried 4 different cables. The profiles all seemed the same. I may have to grind one to a slimmer diameter.

    Hello Gerry;
    From your picture it looks like you are using a shutter release with a Compur end. This has tapered threads on the end. The supermatics, rapax, ilex, and graphex shutters used a different end that had #5-44 straight thread and was smaller in diameter on the end. These are hard to find and many were fitted with a solenoid for flash. Hope this helps, Steven.

    Hello Gerry;
    I noticed that you are located in Oregon, lived there for many years. In Portland is the Pacific Rim camera store, should have the cable release that you need. They have a large stock and be sure to take your camera with you. They are experts on Graflex. Hope this helps, Steven.

    Thanks for the reminder, Steven. They are only a 1+ hr drive. I'll give them a call.
