Kodak Six-20 Brownie Repair
This camera belonged to one of my grandmothers. It was given to me by my Mom after grandma passed away, and I've kept it in clean storage for quite a few years now. This will be the first year that I will participate in 6-20 Day (June 20th, naturally) on NFf, so I was going through my collection to see which camera held the biggest promise of actually working.

I also have a Vigilant Six-20, and a Foldex 20, but decided that this is the one I should use. Besides, the Vigilant was going to take some work on the shutter, and the Foldex is sort of cheating, because you can run 620 or 120 in it. So for the pure experience, I chose the Brownie.

While looking it over, I noticed that I couldn't see out of the horizontal viewer, so I figured it was best to open it up to find what the problem was. And it was also a good thing to do some housecleaning while I was in there.

Turned out that the horizontal mirror had come loose, so it was just a matter of gluing it back in. Follow along as I do some work on Grandma's Camera.
