Copal-MX Leaf Shutter (20)

Copal-MX Leaf Shutter (20)
Copal-MX, Japanese Leaf Shutter. Production year around 1955.
As used on the Fodorflex and Beautyflex D TLR's

By turning the Diaphragma Lever everyone of the 4 screws that hold the shutter housing halves together can be reached and removed.

Note that all 4 screws are different.

Because the Release Lever has a bit more freedom it is just possible to reach Screw 2.

I must have a look later on when re-installing if nothing went wrong on the other side of Screw 3. As you can see it is very long and has a special shape. Probably an anchor post for a spring.

When the last screw is removed the whole shutterbase can be taken out downwards.
You should do this very carefully as there is a danger that one or more of the shutterblades
come off their anchor posts.
