    Swapping Copal Shutter Fittings

    Folks,

    I recently purchased a lens in a Linhof recessed lens board, and the shutter is fitted with the recessed board fittings; angled cable release and angled PC fittings. I want to swap these fittings and put them on a shutter for a different lens. Both are Copal 0 shutters.

    My question is are there parts going to fly out when I remove the fittings? Probably not but better to ask fist.

    TIA, Steve

    Steve,
    You can replace the parts with no worries. Just use a properly sized, good quality screwdriver when working on the small screws that hold the parts in place.

    The small screws that look like Phillips are not. They're "cross-point". Big difference.

    Using a small Phillips on a cross-point screw will bung up the screw badly.
