    We make Shutter Curtains!

    Hey everyone! I'm based in Duluth, Minnesota and for the past few years I've dedicated myself to finding solutions for LF cameras like Graflex, Thornton, and Kershaw.

    I realized that there's a lot of people in this community who may find this is a resource, simply because there aren't many people doing this work anymore. Through an incredible amount of time and effort, I have managed to create OEM replacement curtains for these cameras with emphasis on Graflex models. I hand cut the curtains from original-spec material as well as fabricate new stiffening ribs.

    If you're interested in my help, my website contact can be found at www.graflexparts.com/service-department or you can email me at graflexparts@gmail.com Curtains run about $300-$500 depending on format/model.
