Re: Vintage film cameras

Minolta AL arrived this afternoon, looks good. Not checked the meter but it's quite responsive (selenium), shutter speeds work from 1/1000 to 1s and the self timer runs smoothly. The RF is mainly...

Re: Vintage film cameras

I think so - I have a Super Program which is the same thing. You have auto exposure (programmed, with SMC-A lenses) plus full manual and aperture- or shutter-priority. Fully electronic vertical...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Think I'll leave the Box Tengor. One good photo on a forum thread set me on the path of thinking about boxes, but I suspect it'd be a lesson in unfulfilled anticipation. Speaking of which, I picked...

Re: Backfire on idle issues

Yep, sounds like it's running too rich, which at low revs is likely to be sticky choke(s)

Re: Vintage film cameras

Nice Nikon, I do wonder if I should figure them out and find one. Kenzie, PM me the link for Lincoln and I'll check it out

Re: Wills & solicitors

Can't really remember TBH. I rang them up (I rang almost everyone on the Monday, I was pretty much running it all anyway) and that's what they told me. I was just wondering, having read the above, if...

Re: Wills & solicitors

Up to you, looks pretty simple to me, but I am hardly an expert! I'd better ask - what's the deal with the pension? I told the DWP and they gave one final payment (for the month my dad died) which...

Re: Wills & solicitors

Yep that's right. I had to submit IHT400 and a bunch of others but it all came back in less than a month, it was all clear cut despite the may forms in our case. The solicitor where I swore the oath...

Re: Wills & solicitors

Power of attorney ceases with the person, so while you have to send this with the probate form, it has no leverage now. You don't need a solicitor. Once you have the probate authorization the you...

Re: Cleaning Carbs

I don't know if the OP is still around but this is the most relevant post amongst the Redex/snake oil love in. Get a second opinion, and be prepared to stump up. A couple of hours sounds about right,...

Re: Vintage film cameras

I think Harrow used to charge about 90-100 for a CLA of a similar Pentax, plus any parts other than light seals etc.

Re: Vintage film cameras

Yes, most definitely separation. There are people who say they can fix it but I doubt it's cheap.
I can get smallish amounts of hexane from work, when/if that option goes then I don't know what...

Re: Vintage film cameras

Lordy don't use that, get something pure. If you think you'll need a lot e.g. for soaking then you could do the first pass with white spirit, it takes a while to evaporate but if you were going to...

Re: Vintage film cameras

I'm fairly disliking scale focus/uncoupled RFs but for those with more patience the Solida is a good camera, f2.9 Radionar is a good lens and the Synchro Compur shutter is a decent bit of kit. And...

Re: December photo competion - Big machines

Well as it's the last day of January we should wrap this up. Sorry Mav, it was a good choice of subject but I just didn't get the opportunity.

Re: Newbie to group - advice needed!

I'd say use the lowering kit and give it a go - as you guessed, at least to start with you won't be too worried about the changes in handling. If you become a fast rider then you'll know what you...
