    Good morning, Mike;

    Yes, there is indeed the probability that you will "alter" the selected shutter speed timing on the Argus C3 (the "Brick") by having one of your fingers in the way when the cocking lever rotates back to its "uncocked" position. I have done this with my venerable samples here.

    Regarding the use of the self-timer lever on many older Compur and Seikosha shutters, my local friendly camera tech also recommends not using it or the "V" position on those older shutters.
    Enjoy;

    When they ask you; "How many Mega Pixels you got in your camera?"
    just tell them; "I use activated silver bromide crystals tor my image storage media."

    There was a good reason to locate them where the are now: it is about the only place for it in many camera's !
    Handy ? At times maybe not, but I never could be bathered about them, cause I never used them.
    And that not-use caused the oil in them to thicken so tehy stoped working after years.......

    If a body part does not get any use it dies, the law of nature......
