I thought I had found a gem at the boot sale this morning. Mint OM4 kit, lenses and winder etc but it was 300. I did grab the OM1n though, found a Canon AE1 rewind crank is a close for (not perfect) and the prism has some desilvering but it winds and fires and the meter works. It's now wearing Admins 50mm f1.8

I bought this 50mm for the A1 recently. The winder was another untested ebay purchase. It works fine.

I have one of those lens caps. I still haven't gotten around to shooting Yoko's battered A1 yet.

Quite cool those lens caps. Did you get the A1 working in the end?

It worked fine when i got it, just the usual shutter cough which i fixed. You might be thinking of the ME super which defeated me.

Just repaired this 28mm f2.8 Zuiko, got it for 16 but listed as sticky aperture and fungus. No fungus, and a simple case of cleaning oil off the mechanism.

It got dented in transit though. It had bubble wrap but it was just taped up in some cardboard.

I got the RC back together. The new lens is a million times better than the old one. All set up and ready for a test.
