    Light seals.

    Has anyone repaired/replaced the light seals of their SLR?
    I have done some minor camera repair and do have a nice lighted magnifier and proper tools but this would be a first for me.
    The camera is not leaking light but the gasket material is gummy and breaking down.

    Thanks,
    JMK

    Mike, I bought a light seal kit from Jon Goodman who is a very nice guy and is sometimes here in the APUG forums. Instructions are included and I think you can do several SLR's with the kit. I did three Yashica Electro 35 cameras and it worked out very well. I think the kits are under $10.

    He is also on Ebay but I don't know his used ID. His email is

    Jgood21967@aol.com

    I Hope this helps

    Jon sells on Ebay with the ID of 'Interslice'. His kits are superb. I used one to reseal an OM-10, a Voigtlander Vito CLR, a Canonet QL17 GIII and an OM-1.

    Interslice - very good to deal with and very quick service to UK and, most likely, other parts of the world. I used a kit to repair an EOS.

    Piece of cake with Jon's kits. I've done all my Nikons.

    Have to add to the praise of Jon's Kits, the kits are great and very reasonably price, well worth it..

    Another "me too" response; I've got one of Jon's kits. I've not yet done any SLRs, but I've fixed up a Canonet QL17 and have another that needs this attention. It's pretty simple (both the materials and the procedure). Jon does a good job of putting together the stuff you need along with (most important of all, IMHO) detailed instructions so you'll know what to do with it.
