Had to work at getting this picture because the shutter on my Primo Jr., a beautiful TLR that takes 127 film, needs an overhaul and is very erratic. I got lucky with this shot. Taken on Macophot 100, 1/60th (or whatever ) at f8, developed in HC110 1:63 for 12 minutes. Scanned negative.
Thanks Phil. This one really deserves a restore job. I have two parts cameras, but it's the shutter, and they're gone on all three. We have no guy in Canada that can do this that I'm aware of.
Any recommendations in the US or elsewhere?
Several years ago I had a Kodak Medalist repaired by the below service. He did an excellent job at a fair price. He worked out of his home in Toronto. I don't know if he is still in business but you might try calling.

This camera was also marketed (at least in the US) as the Sawyer's Mark IV (Sawyer's was a brand of slide projector back then). While in high school I bought one new for about $80 in late 1958 at Sears, Roebuck. Used it for years through college and onward and still have it. An excellent, sturdy camera; never had any trouble with it over thousands of rolls of film.
