I've found anold Nagel 33 folder.  The ground glass is missing and the shutter isn't consistent.  The shutter is a Compur.  Anyone know where I might get a new ground glass?  Anyone know if the shuter alone can be replaced?

Thanks

Carol Flutot may be able to repair the shutter, or Ken Ruth may be able to fabricate a part. You might want to ask your questions at the Large Format Photography forum: http://www.largeformatphotography.info See this thread: http://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/showthread.php?95635-Help-save-our-old-Shutters

Good luck!

I've been able to get those shutters to work by repeated firing and cocking from the fastest speed to the slowest.
10 or 20 shots at each speed.
When you get to the slowest speeds you will more than likely hear it improve with each shot.

I have managed to get old shutters like this working again by spraying them with
a Mass Air Flow cleaner. The kind used for cleaning components of auto emissions system sensors.
I then lubricate them with a high end teflon lubricant like SailKote. Leaves no residue.
Be sure to remove the lens elements first.

No warranty on this method... Wink

Thanks, Fred I'll give that a try.  As far as other forums, I don't really want to be registering at a bunch of other places I'll likely never visit again.
