Johnny, I think I'll pass on the turntable. Not looking to spend so much, I'd want to play 45s and taking off the platter to change speed would irritate the eff out of me. I've already discounted Projects for that reason - oh, and because their tracking and anti-skate is controlled by what looks like a piece of 18th century fishing tackle.
Seems like you've got lots of good reasons to keep it, especially if it sounds good.

No worries. It is indeed basic - you balance the tone arm yourself when you have moved the unit, for example. Since we have started delving into the stupid world of streaming music we've finally moved a few things around that were just plonked in place when we moved in 9 years ago, and we're playing a lot more music than we used to.

Grrr, pulled a part used roll of HP5 out of the mju before selling it and now I can't get the leader out of the can. 12 shots in, don't want to waste 24!

Talking of film - I picked up a roll of Kosmo photo film today at WYC. Seems it's from the Fomapan factory. I've never used it before so I thought I'd give it a go. There was a minty black Canon FTb in stock but before it could seduce me, I looked into its soul and saw only a ground glass microprism viewfinder. Phew! lucky escape.

I'm probably going to bid on this 223329968277 as it looks lovely, the meter works but am waiting for a reply on what it means by "not shuttering fully".

I believe its Fomapan 100, I was a bit disappointed but its got a nice box. Cool looking camera Johnny, I've stayed relatively restrained but I did buy a Lynx 5000 in need of repair. Shutter is laggy but the aperture has jumped off the guide and will need a full strip down. FM light seals arrived today as well. Finally bringing my camper van home tomorrow.

The lynx has the same aperture blades as the Konica I think, which have the pivots stamped from the thin metal sheet like dimples, and two of them shearing off was the original problem I had with it, you can only replace them. Later shutters of the same type e.g. Canonets had holes punched in them and pegs as pivots just like the shutter blades do, so better and not interchangeable with the earlier ones.

Dunno if you've delved into a Copal shutter but they're the work of the devil. It's doable but it's hard to know what you're meant to take off in what order, and there seem to be loads of bits. Probably worth a look, these things are a mystery until you get your hands on them.

You should try delving into the witchcraft that is the shutter of a Fujica Auto M! Never did get that one back together. The 5000 is pretty clean, just screwed up inside.
