Koilos shutter fixing and cleaning.

Post by alexvaras » Sun Oct 28, 2018 2:44 pm

Hi all,

Here its something 100 years old at least, it has a Tessar SN#123452 from 1909/1910.
The shutter doesn't stay cocked.

Some photos here, all of them in flickr.

It was due dirty grease and a bit worn out, lets see if tomorrow it keeps working :)

Alex, nice work on that shutter. The fact that such an old shutter can still work correctly after more than 100 years. It says a lot about the design, precision and choice of materials that went into the manufacturing process.

I like the way they coded the shutter blades with the little holes. Good job on the clean out, Alex.
