You still looking to buy that SRT on the 24th Howard?

I'm kind of vaguely interested but not enough to stay up until 1 minute past midnight tonight to buy it. I'll take a look tomorrow to see if it's still around. Are you thinking about it too?

Possibly. I robbed some bits of a good SRT to help someone out. I don't really need it, but for the price it might be worth it to restore the other to working. I'll probably be using the SRT you sent me this week.

At the sale price and no postage, it's worth it if you want a few bits.
The broken, self-timer lever donor XD5 arrived, along with an unidentifiable plastic lens. (missing the ring in the front)
Electrically dead but the shutter fires on B and O settings so mechanically it's sound. Removed the baseplate and battery compartment and found that the wire had disconnected. I might be able to solder it but it's tight to get at.

Done, 4.50 plus free shipping. Hopefully you can revive the XD, it would be great if that's all the problem was.

Any joy with the XD Howard? A friend bought me a new finder for my Nikon F, this one is in much better condition and has a nice clear viewfinder.

The Nikon F looks nice and in good condition.
I haven't had time to play with the XD5 yet though I did take the timer lever off and put it on the good one. Mirror damper is a pain to replace on the XDs, really hard to get to. I might experiment with taking the lens mount off on the dud one to see if it's easier to access.
Did the SRT arrive?

I think the mirror buffer was an issue with my copy, but in the end I stripped it for parts. Fixed a couple of others using bits. The F is OK, but the frame counter isn't working properly. Yeah the SRT arrived really quickly. I've managed to repair my SRT as I had robbed some parts off it.
