WZFO Start-B TLR Shutter (07)

WZFO Start-B TLR Shutter (07)
WZFO Start-B.

The removed Cone (see green arrow) lying upside down.

WARNING : The Middle Lens element (see red arrow) is now lying completly loose !
As with a middle element it is harder to see which side of the glass should be pointing to the front or the back you have to be particular carefull here and try to maintain its orientation till you could mark it.

So i put a card over the lens opening and turned the Shutter upside down in the hope that the Middle Lens Element would fall out onto that card.
Needless to say that it didn't :-(

It's really time for buying a vacuum lens pick-up tool because that would have been handy in these kind of situations !

There did rest only one option. Trying to push the Middle Lens Element out from the rear.
So again i shall have to put a card against the lens opening and turn the Shutter upside-down to work from the back. See in the course of next images.

But first had to remove the Shutter Cover which can be simply lifted off.
