I've inherited a 1926 made 4x5 RB and it has the usual aged shutter curtains. I've read just about everything here I could find about the shutter ( which is lots!) and wanted to make sure I had all the right materials on hand before I start taking it apart.

As far as I can tell, I'll need a strip of shutter cloth about 0.008" thick, 6" wide and 6' long. Will I need any shutter tape? If so, what size/width? Anything else I'll need to do the rebuild?

I've seen mention made of a set of instructions to do this, would it be possible to get a copy of those?

I'm used to working with small precision things on my model railroad, so I'm sure a shutter will be within my skills, as long as I know what I'm doing.

I would strip and recoat the existing curtain unless the base material is bad over making a new curtain.
