Thanks. I intend to use it. But the only way it's behaving even this well is because of all the spring-bending I did to get the springs to play nice against each other. Before, I had .400 for 1/2, and 1/10 all the way past 25, and 1/40 all the way to B. The shutter setting is actually a dial with cam steps, and when it would come to the nest step everything was all mixed up, because of the weak springs. The shutter-return spring for instance doesn't have the strength to hardly move itself, much less the leaves. I've got a copy of

on the way, so I'm sure I'll be back in this thing. At least I can shoot something for the time being though.
