Rolleicord Focus Issues
I've been trying to restore a rolleicord art deco, on and off for a while now.
I finally got a mirror cut, and got around to trying to set the focus.
However, I can't focus the taking lens to infinity. If the camera is set to 3.5m, it is focused to infinity. When I change it to infinity setting, naturally it goes out of focus. This change moves the lens about 2mm. I doubt this distance should be shimmed, it seems far too great!
Any ideas on how I can reset the focus and get it working properly? I'm thinking there must be some adjustment in the mechanism, but I can't see it. Also when the lens is at infinity, surely the mechanism should be flush with the body?
Also, I've replace the shutter mechanism with one from a different camera. It IS the same shutter (copal 00), so the lenses just slot straight in. I've checked the mesurements, and they all seem to match perfectly. This *could* be the reason for the focus issues, but I don't think it is.
