Shutter Mechanics

The drawing of the shutter mechanism shows how a thin phosphor bronze spring 5, applies pressure to the shutter plate. Turning the adjustment screw positions little indented spots in the sleeve, 4, that line up with pips on the spring. It works, but is not exactly a positive or precise mechanism, and it can be broken with too much spinning, so watch out.
