Fixin' to Fix

Self Portrait This is a self-portrait I took by pointing my Canon 7D down into my Royce Reflex TLR and using the self-timer. The Royce Reflex's shutter doesn't work and the mirror for the viewing lens is a little out of alignment. I have a few really cool old cameras like this that don't work - I've been planning on trying to teach myself how to repair some of these. I've done minor repairs, like fixing light seals, but I would like to be able to actually get into the mechanics of the cameras. I think this camera might be a good one to start with - its completely mechanical(nothing electronic), I only paid a few bucks for it, and its not like I can break something is already broke.
