    where to have shutter fixed

    Hi,

    If I should need a shutter cleaned and adjusted (which I guess I do), where shou ld I send it? (In other words, the real question is: Who should I trust to work on my LF shutters at a fair price for good work and a reasonable turnaround time ?)

    Thanks,

    Denny Wilkins

    where to have shutter fixed

    The professionals are just going to love me after this. I was given some used Graflex cameras, one rail and one Speed G, along with a assortment of lenses, by a friend of mine. The lenses had't been used in years. I removed the top plate on them, sprayed with WD-40, washed out with warm water and soap, degreased with a spray type gun cleaner solvent, repeated the process several times and very lightly lubed. Checked operation with a Calumet shutter tester and they all worked pretty good. With all due respect to the pros I wouldn't try this with new modern lenses.

    Ditto: Steve Grimes. He is in New England. You can get his number from any copy of View Camera magazine.

    Did you ever check the characteristics of WD 40?

    If so you will find that WD 40 states that it leaves a lubricating film on whatever it is sprayed on.

    This film, and therefore WD 40, should never get anywhere near shutter blade
