in Japan by Konishiroku Co in the mid 1960's, its a large heavy
solidly built rangefinder camera. It has a weird Cds meter at left of
camera with a hi-lo switch.
A few things to fix here.
the aperture blades didn't move, removed rear lens elements from inside
camera and to clean blades with lighter fluid.
Next, whole lens assembly was loose. Removed top, bottom plate and leatherette
from front of camera. Removed screws holding lens assembly to camera,
then had to tighten three screws which moved when I wobbled lens and plate
they look like they hold a ring onto lens?
And lastly about a week after I put the camera back together the screw
holding down the winding lever snapped!! I had to cut a slight dent into
broken bit still in screw hole to be able to turn it to get it out, then
I simply drilled a hole through top piece and found a screw that fitted
and that's now fixed. Waiting to find another camera to get a proper bit
