    then placed it in a michrowave spectacle cleaning unit for a couple of cycles.
    according to my watchmaker, propyl works better than anything else and leaves no trace of oil.
    only thing is, that if shutter is soaked for more than 5-10 min, printed letters might dissolve.
    ocasionally you can dismantle printed areas.
    work the shutter and iris while soaked wet, dip in fresh propyl and leave to dry.
    if you have to oil. only oil visible parts in the shutter sparingly.
    it works for me.

    Being metal, putting a shutter in a microwave is a no-no.

    I would not oil any part of the shutter. Klio (Prontor) shutters are designed to run completely dry and oiling them will at best not help and at worst attract dust which will erode the moving parts.

    A camera like this is probably 60 years old. It probably has never been serviced in its life. It would be surprising if it worked correctly.

    I would guess that some routine service would bring it back into working order.

    By the way, the cost of paying someone to service the camera would easily exceed what you paid for it.

    If you have not found the proper screw yet and want to test it with film, use a cable release. But you have to remove the screw that covers the cable release socket on the shutter assembly, if you can find the proper screwdriver for it. (The slit is quite narrow)

    Have inspected my Nettar, I believe the screw needed is a pivot screw. If you will use an ordinary screw, I think it will just lock up the linkage.

    I have yet to see a screw covering the cable release socket. I suppose they might have been fitted on new cameras but none of my collection (just over 40) have a cover in place.

    The screw cover on the cable release socket may have been introduced in the later models of the 518/16. I think on models with the anti-double X assembly. In these models, you will notice a different shutter button as the cable release socket is now incorporated like modern shutter buttons.

    I have the 518/16 Novar f:4.5 with Pronto shutter, this has the later anti-double X. Based on info found on the net, circa 1955-56.

    Actually, the 518/16 has two cable release sockets - one on the body release and one on the shutter housing. I was not aware of the one on the body release - I just never looked that closely, I guess. The shutter housing cable release socket can be clearly seen in this picture from Marriott's World.

    Best idea would be to look for an inexpensive non working camera on ebay for donor parts. I have this camera with the f6.3 lens. Makes great negs/images!

    In my case, when I got the 518/16, I did not notice the cable release socket in the shutter button. I was preparing to check for the accuracy of the focus and tried to take out the cover screw on the one in the shutter assembly, could not find a screwdriver to fit, then I noticed the one in the shutter release button so problem solved.

    Yes, it will be simpler to find a donor unit, but the quality of these cameras are good. Unless they were exposed to the elements, they can be revived...

    And now we have a winner! The advice on APUG is worth more than it costs.
