I hear that Bert Saunders is the master of the graflex info.
I would love to have some info on shutter tear down, tuneups, etc

Info on a 2x3 series b rb would be nice but as I understand all models are basically the same design.

Please email me what you have if you are listening.


Thanks
-Wes

The major cause of trouble with the FPS is the luberication on the curtain rollers dries out causing them to drag and most compound the problem by increasing the tension on the main tension spring causing it to break prematurely.
Remove the back, apply degreaser or alcohol to the roller ends and operate the shutter a few times then put 1 to 3 drops of 3in1 machine oil or simular on each roller end and operate the shutter some more. Do Not use Water Disperant #40 as it will build up, dry out and gunk things up more than they currently are.

I fail to see a email address in your profile or post. I have Bert's FPS instructions buried on my HD or copied to CD.
