    ... and for a third time!

    They love to be scrupulously clean and properly lubricated.

    Can we see which versions of the Compur you have?

    which shutter do you have? look through the repair manual and read up on it... you may change your mind once you see what you are getting into...

    I decided to take it to a local repair shop. I'm in New York City so we have several competent options.

    I wish we had at least one good repairman left in San Diego. My man who grew up in Deckel, Germany passed away several years ago, and I and others sorely miss him.
    If you have a good repair shop, use it and keep them in business. You and others will be thankful.
