Many of the original Mamiya 645 Pro cameras were definitely sold with a power winder and without the manual crank. It may be the same for the Mamiya 645 Super.
Yaaaa... I know that. But to think the wind on the film back would cock the camera's shutter indicates a lack of understanding of the mechanics of the tool. Not his fault. Most people these days grow up with no knowledge of the technologies they use.

Just a fact of life. Live and hopefully learn.
