I am considering purchasing an RB super graflex in immaculate condition. However i'm very unfamiliar with its operation. when i attempt to lock the mirror it does not stay down, neither will the high/low knob rotate into the low position. is the camera broken or am i missing something? thanks for any help, larry

Read the online RB manual and re ask your question as there is no high/low knob just a curtain wind key and tension knob. The curtain will not wind if the shutter control is set to T (time). Release lever on left side of body may not be returning to home position keeping the mirror release open. The mirror may not set if the shutter I (instanteous) T (time) lever or wheel is not set to either of the positions.
A link to the onlne manual is in the Reflex Help index box and can easily be found from the main page under technical information.

And some of us even know where "west chester" is, too! (Hint: not NY)
