    Re: Cable release thread

    Thanks for this crazy amount of info! I still have not received my taps yet. I will run test with a piece of aluminum first and let you know results.

    Re: Cable release thread

    OK. Which thread tap size is correct? 5-44 or 5-48? I have already ordered a 5-44 and have not received yet. I guess I'l do a test tap in a scrap piece of aluminum and check.

    Lens mount to Copal No. 1

    Just curious. Are there lenses that you can "plug and play" into a Copal No. 1 shutter?

    Re: Cable release thread

    What tap size should I use? I think I should try that first. I have a feeling this part is a pain to find in perfect shape.

    Re: Cable release thread

    YES!! It is not connected as a unit! I can replace this part myself. Now I need to find one. Any chance to re tap what I have?

    Re: Cable release thread

    Can I replace myself without taking shutter apart? Of course, this mechanism reaches inside to activate something.
