Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (16)

Fodorflex Reaching for the Shutter (16)
Fodorflex (aka Beautyflex D).
Japanese 6x6 TLR. Produced around 1955.

So now only the Selftimer Arm still sticks through the Lens Shroud.

The little Knob on it is cinched to the Arm so DO NOT try to remove that !

Instead notice that the left side of the slit (see red arrow) has a bit more height. In fact just enough to let the Selftimer Knob pass through it.

Only thing you have to do is rotate the Shutter a bit till the Arm is at the left side of the slit.
Then pull the Shroud from the Shutter.

btw Notice that the Shutter has a serial number. Promising !
