    The foto museum is interesting, but the how-to step by step project instructions should be veiwed with a grain of salt, as the instructions are through, but not clear...

    Example is replacing a FP shutter, some parts are misnamed, and not clear as to the steps... There are other "white papers" on how to do it that are much clearer than the presentation on Jo's site...

    Beware...

    There was plenty of bubble wrap, but not where it was needed, box looked fine

    The FocuSpot was knocked off and the very heavy duty stainless steel flash handle mount is bent, definetly not in the FS pics

    I could fix those parts, BUT it won't open and I know these dern things pretty well, something is jamming it, the button is working it clicks both on and off

    The rear shutter works fine, it DOES have the GG, the rear lens looks fine as do the folded bellows

    IDK

    I am going to make a pic and sleep on it tonight
    To open, try rolling the focus knobs while pushing the bed inward... I have seen where the focus rail has extended inside of closed camera getting hung up, or remove focus panel on back to access front standard if the FS locks were loose and it's stuck in extended front rise in shell... Give it a wiggle inside...

    I have seen this happen...

    Thanks, I tried both numerous times

    One last try today if we have failure, back it goes for full refund
