Shutter curtains

Hi all - I have a VT with wrinkled curtains. Has been working wll but suddenly will not advance the shutter and wrinkling looks terrible. Is there someone to recommend to replace the curtains or do I toss it and buy something similar from the market...? Thanks

Essex Camera, Dan Goldberg, Sherry Krauter (Golden Touch), Kindermann, Steve Choi, and any other good repairer of mechanical cameras should be able to replace the curtains. If it has stainless steel curtains (unlikely), they would need to be replaced with cloth. Quite possible it's just a failure of the tapes.
