Default Cable release for Sinar shutter.

I was lucky (?) enough to be able to buy a Sinar shutter to go with my barrel lenses. Yay! I can now adapt something to be able to use those repromaster lenses (see thread) and a sinaron. But (there's always a but) I need a cable release that reaches the trigger mechanism. All the releases that I posess do not, they do not throw the prod out far enough. The shutter is fine-I fired it using most of an Allen key. When I took the front off the shutter I found all I needed was a longer throw cable release. Any ideas or suggestions, anybody got one? Thanks. JimW

Jim,
I have a cable release that throws the prod out 15mm (measured). You can have it if it is any good to you.

Thanks. Will get back to you, if I may. Need to measure the exact distance required.

Hi
The throw of a Sinar release for a Sinar Copal shutter is 46mm.

Good luck.

No problem Jim. Sounds like you have a job on. Stay out of bodging mode as long as you can, and good luck.

Alan

Have drawn up some plans, making use of some control gear used in CNC engineering. I too do not like the bodge look.
