The Tower

After completely disassembling my Widelux (and after buying special tools online), I now have accurately timed and fully operational 1/15, 1/125, and 1/250 shutter speeds (all three the camera can do). Saved myself ~$300 in repairs. 🙂

No crazy springs or other scary stuffs, just an impossibly large array of incredibly tiny gears that needed to be individually oiled and cleaned, then carefully placed back in the exact order, in the correct orientation, in the right spot, with the right pressure, on the right teeth marks.. it took a short eternity, but now everything works!

I’ll post more photos from my first roll soon. For now, my free time (hah..) will be dedicated to enjoying the 1/15 and 1/250 shutter speeds.
