Exa CLA

Giving this 1954 Exa a clean and lube. There's really nothing to adjust in these aside from the frame spacing which should never really need adjusting anyway.

 

This camera had some dust in it but was pretty clean. I was surprised though that it didn't seem to be of the high quality of later Exas or of Exaktas of the same period.

 

It is still well made, but the fit of parts was not as perfect as I expect from old Ihagee cameras... this is also the first time I've come across an Exakta with a shim under the lens mount.

 

After cleaning and some tiny drops of oil for the advance and rewind shafts the camera works smooth as ever. Exas are great, rugged little things.
