This wasn't so bad, but a guy gave me a Rolleicord that needed a little work. I had just started a little camera repair business after taking a course in Denver. I cleaned the shutter and replaced the covering and took one roll of film with it. It needed some repair on the WLF and the latch for the back but I had no idea where to get parts. I put it up of the shelf and left it for about 5 years. Then I clicked the shutter one day and found it was slow so I decided I was not going to put any more time in it and literally tossed it in the garbage. A few years later the internet came out and places like ebay had people selling cameras for parts. I could have fixed it up or sold it for parts. That has always bugged me that I tossed that camera. Oh well!
