Thread: Shutter CLA

  1. #1

    Shutter CLA

    I have a Kodak 127mm in a Supermatic(x) shutter that needs CLA. The glass is perfect! and I have tried the home remedies to get the shutter in shape without taking it apart. At least it operates now and is not bound up solid when I got it. I really don't need it , but would hate for it to just sit on a shelf. I doubt if it would be worth the expense to have the CLA. What should I do with it? Thanks!

    Well... if the home remedy worked then go shoot some pictures. If it starts acting up and you want reliability then consider a professional overhaul.

    That is one lens I chose to keep, always sharp pictures.

    If it helps you make great photos you can't get with another lens [that you already own], by all means spend more than it's worth getting some professional work done.

    Send it to Carol at Flutos and she will take care of it. If you love it then I'd do it.

    If you really donít need it then have the shutter CLA and sell it. Or just sell it and let the buyer worry about it. You might contact Bob Watkins, Pro Camera in DC, Pro Camera in Charlottesville, Tempe Camera or any of the other professional camera repair stations for costs for a CLA as well as a time frame to do it. Carol isnít the only person capable of a professional CLA and she is having health problems with her husband.

    Communicated via email with Carol earlier today. Yes, her husband is dealing with some health issues but at times it is a welcomed diversion to have some work to attend to. Best thing to do is to send her an email and she will let you know where she is with a time line. Her fees are reasonable and she does a fantastic job. Great lady. Over the last year Carol has CLA'd three shutters for me.
