Hi,
I just got an Anniversary Speed Graphic 4X5 off ebay, after examing the camera, I found out, although the shutter is working, there are many tiny pin holes on the shutter cloth.

Are there ways to patch the holes? I am thinking to use some kind of thin black paint, but I don't know what kind of paint will make the shutter cloth still flexible after painting.

Any one has done this repair before?

Thanks,
Suibu

Go to the local hardware store and buy a can of "poly coat" or "tool dip" in black. ( It's that rubbery stuff for coating tools with ) Paint it on spairingly and let dry. Subsitute, black silicone rubber or sealant.
