Tom Abrahamsson of RapidWinder.com It is almost never that an inventor improves on a Leica product so that it is better than the original Leica product. Tom holds that distinction with his RapidWinder for Leica M rangefinders -- a bottom mounting baseplate trigger advance. In addition Tom manufacturers other Leica accessories such as his very popular Soft Release and MiniSoftRelease shutter releases. Tom is well known as one of the true Leica rangefinder experts, even by Leica. IMPORTANT READ THIS: CWE Forum hosts have moderation powers within their forum.

thinking of TomA

many days throughout the year(s) I think of Tom, and always on the first day of the new year, as it was his day to replace batteries in those devices that required them...

Tom is missed. A rare talent and one of the hearts and souls that have made RFF a great hangout place.

He was a great help to me when I started to get serious about shooting with rangefinders. It's nice that we have a lot of his wisdom archived here on RFF.

I volunteered for the Tom A. project, but so far I haven't received any directions on what to do. I guess it's early, yet. I miss talking to Tom at the LHSA meetings!
