Thread: Repairing a Kodak lens

    Repairing a Kodak lens

    I have a Kodak Anastigmat Special lens, clean glass, F4.5 100mm B-1/400 in a No. 1 Supermatic shutter, which focuses, that I took off an old Kodak Monitor camer a to use on my Century Graphic; Formats the same. The shutter speed is the same regardless of the setting. When you get to this point of repair, is it wise to r epair or buy another or something else? If it's worth it, who's good on Kodak.

    The slow speed gears are probably dirty/gummed up. Try cleaning it. This was the case with all of the older shutters that I've run across that were firing at the same speed. I have no issues with professional repairs, but when it comes to servicing shutters that have no overwhelming monetary value, I always try it myself first.
