Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (01)

Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (01)
Fodorflex.
Japanese 6x6 TLR. Produced around 1955.

A name-variant of the Japanese Taiyodo Koki Beautyflex D which was imported to the Netherlands by the company Fodor.

I have this TLR lying around for quite a while now but couldn't shoot with it as the shutter has some serious flaws. All speeds work in Slow-motion and the Selftimer lever doesn't butch. Time for an investigation !

No repair manuals on the internet. Not about the Fodorflex but also not about the Beautyflex D so this is (again) a travel in the unknown :-)

Wanna be Fodorflex repairers should be aware of the fact that there are several versions of it and i really don't know if what i publish in this set will also be usable for the other versions. So take care !
