I have an old Ensign Autorange 16-20, Rangefinder Camera.
There was a fair bit of dust in the lens and the slow shutter speeds are definitely slow.
The main body of the lens dismantles happily but I have got to the stage when I think I need to remove the rangefinder arm and second lens from the front.
There are no obvious screwheads on either the front or reverse.
Does anybody have any experience with dismantling one of these cameras with the Epsilon shutter. I need to clean and lubricate the shutter mechanism.
I have tried removing the second front lens using some bicycle inner tube glued onto the end of a fat dowel, but refuses to budge.

If I cannot gain access to the mechanism I think it will be a job for a professional with a hefty bill at the end.

Cheers .
