    90mm f/5.6 Fujinon, no F stop markings

    I bought a 90mm f/5.6 Fujinon at the beginning of the summer. There are no F stop markings on the shutter. I know I have seen tutorials on how to engrave your own. I do own a dremel so in theory itís possible. I canít remember where I saw the instructions for how to do this. Can someone point me toward a link or two?

    Iím guessing Iíll end up sending to SK Grimes but I wanted to ponder my skill set vs the actual steps.

    Why not order a set of 90mm 5.6 scales from Schneider if itís in a Copal 0 shutter?

    Label maker works. Black letters on white is OK, but white letters on black matches the rest of the shutter.

    Its a Pronto shutter (Copal no. 0 size). Would that work?

    Prontor what? Press? Professional?

    You would have to ask Schneider.

    Go downtown and ask Pro Photo. You would probably want to put it into a better shutter.

    Good thinking! I used to work across the street from them and would pop over all the time.

    I ended up just making my own parks with a label maker. Seems to work fine. But the shutter is not great. It Maybe worth changing it out.
