Just been out testing 2 Rolleiflexes which I had repaired > 1956 E Xenotar -- shutter slow, meter not working , focus knob stiff, broken off base=plate lock pin. 1969 3.5 F Tonguelanar -- shutter slow, stiff winder, meter not working - WELL --- For 150 Quids both now WORK sweetly and meters work and delayed action even! New pin on base-plate of E Xenotar so no more light leaks.
E Xenotar at f5.6

I could not do a 'Full Aperture' test on the 3.5F Planar as light was too strong and i needed 1/1000th at f3.5 and shutter only goes to 1/500th
