Shutter Repair in Sydney?

Postby L2obin » 06 Aug 2017, 01:12

I have a copal 3s shutter that seems to stick/drag on 1s setting.

Is there someone in Sydney that can repair it?

Alternatively, I had s look online/YouTube and it seems like opening it up and reliving the timing mechanism might be worth a try?
Has anyone successfully carried this out and could offer some guidance?

I seldom require servicing to my gear but when I do I send it to Legend through ECS at Drummoyne. However, I learned yesterday that the guy at Legend is currently on leave O/S for about 6 weeks.

As for opening up a shutter and working on the slow speed race, I am too cautious when it comes to such matters. I have always operated by mutual agreement that repair technicians don't take pictures, and I don't get too far into mechanical repairs.
