View Full Version : Shutter Leaf Material

It seems that shutter leaf material is available from packard. Hopefully this can help someone out:

"Metal and .035 Plastic Blades available upon request"

I had an old folding camera that shattered its blade. I wound up having to find a larger shutter, and make a tracing of the one leaf onto the larger one, then cut it out. This would have made life easy ! Although Im not sure what the thickness of most material is; you could get enough to make a new, matching set Im sure.

I suspect there are better sources of this rigid metal for such repairs. Machinists and model makers have need of odd materials.
