I am currently restoring this camera. I thought that restoring the exterior would be the most challenging part of the restoration, but performing the CLA on the shutter is dragging out the restoration. The shutter itself is very simple. The problem is that at some point in the cameras life the cable release thread broke off and someone attempted to braze the piece back in place. The patch did not achieve its intended purpose, the cable release thread hole was missing when I got the camera. However, the shutter mechanism plate was effectively brazed to the shutter mechanism housing. So, I am working to carefully cut the plate free from the housing so that I can service the shutter blades and inner lens components.
