Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (11)

Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (11)
Fodorflex (aka Beautyflex D).
Japanese 6x6 TLR. Produced around 1955.

This Spring (see green arrow) prevents the Shutter from moving upwards as the Spring
is positioned above the Shutter Release Lever. So it has to be removed.

The function of that Spring is to push the Release Arm back and so also the Release Button
(which presses against that Arm).

I could not get one Sping end out of its hole on the right side so decided to remove
the Screw (see red arrow) which forms the Rotating point of the Release Arm.

After that i could position the Spring in such a way that it could be pulled out
of its (anchor-) hole on the right side without causing deformations.

Be aware that the Spring puts force on that Screw so exercise caution when you unscrew it !
