Sold almost all my film on Facebook film for sale site. Found out I had 1485 rolls of 35mm, 52 rolls of 120, a couple 110 and a Kodak Instant Print film all in my basement freezer. All expired but I still cleared $1500 so not too bad. Just a few rolls of 35mm as well as 110 left now. Till my next big find, LOL.

I have somewhere in the neighbourhood of 43 Zenits, 4 Start SLRs, a Kristall, many FEDs, Zorkis, Mir, Smenas, Lubitels and lenses of all sorts, both M39 and M42. Bought the M39-42 adapters too. Love the Russian stuff. That said I've scrapped at least a dozen Zenits because I could never fix them. I'm a huge Praktica guy too.

The new McKeown's Camera Guide should be coming out soon. First time in years. Should be around $300+ for a Hard Cover version or around $100+ for an on-line version you can access. Too rich for my blood either way.

Not sure even how to post photos here any more. My last few tries failed many times so I gave up. I have several dozen from the early 1920's as well that came filled with glass plate negatives from Minnesota that I'm currently having scanned to disk to share on Facebook.

It takes a real craftsman to work on these. Something I'm not capable of so I applaud your efforts. I managed to strip down 6 or 8 Zenits and a couple old Prakticas but even then I lost most of the parts as I lost interest. Great cameras though.

I can sympathize, been through the medical gamut for 21 months now with both knees needing replacement, bariatric clinics and now every test under the sun for stomach/colon woes. Good part is getting up in the morning... at least till my feet hit the floor and I try to stand up, LOL. Beats the alternative as previously stated, Every day above ground is a good one. It sucks when a gopher needs to deliver your mail.
