    Just a modest update that I now also offer CLA services on Wollensak's Studio shutters and iris diaphragm barrels.

    I recently worked with Bill to unstick the speed setting ring on a Rapax shutter and for some advice on a very old Autex shutter. He did a fantastic job, is a great communicator, and the cost was very reasonable. I now have a 70 year old shutter that is within one-third of a step on all speeds other than the fastest, which is within one. Amazing.

    I don't have any of these shutters, but hats off the gent making this service available! As time passes, which it tends to do, we'll need more such voluntarist souls to care for our (collectively speaking) Compurs as well as Copals, along with others. Expecting manufacture of a new shutter is a bit idealistic at this point, though certain needed changes in coming years may begin to restore our manufacturing base and its necessary machine-tool sector.
