2 weeks ago I bought a Flexaret IV on the Ebay, seller claimed it was working. Yeah, sure I thought. That shutter will be like in coma was my assuption. Well, it arrived yesterday and guess what, shutter was comatose and besides that various other problems were present. 1. shutter was stuck but not dead 2. The inside of the viewscreen looked like it was treated with oil, could hardly see trough it. 3. The viewlens was loose!! I don't know what happend there because the retainer is on the inside and not easily reached. 4. when focusing it felt like there was sand inside the focusing mechanism. Luckily the 2 most delicate and hard to repair parts were in working order (Mirror was clean and Countermechanism counted. So I took out the viewscreen, cleaned it nice, removed the entire lenshousing to tighten the viewlens retainer and cleaned the focusing mechanism a little to get rid of the dirt that accumulated. The shutter is still on the workbench but after a cleaning and a little lubing it's spinning nice again. Gonna let it rest a night and see if it's still works tomorrow before installing it again. This shows how misleading some sellers are. Flexaret camera's are nice machines but they must be bought after a CLA, just imagine that somebody would have bought it and didn't know to repair it, he would be disgusted by hearing the word Flexaret for the rest of his/her life. Luckily this nice Flexaret IV will have a better home and a more interesting life from now on. Still thinking what to do with the feedback, should I give him Negative feedback (and risking a retaliation ) or a neutral?? I couldn't give a positive for this since he claimed it worked when it didn't.
