"If the shutter fails" you send it to Carol at Flutots. For a $65 (+) fee or whatever she charges these days, it'll come back better than those new-fangled Copal thingies, and last longer than those Kodak Supermatic ergonomic disasters.... I've had Wollie shutters for the last few decades on a variety of lenses and they are really reliable machines.
