Just before I started this Blog, while I was working on fixing my first cameras, I discovered a great forum dedicated to people who fixed their own photographic equipment.
The Classic Camera Repair Forum was created by Kar Yan & Henry on their kyphoto.com site to share information about reviving old cameras.
I found this site while searching for repair manuals. They had some links and their own articles about repairing … but they also created a Forum.
This forum is where I first bumped into Rick Oleson, and many others who contributed information that has helped me over the years.
Sadly the site shut down in 2013. You can view it via WayBack Machine: Kyphoto.com
The archives are also available on the RangeFinder Forum: RFF – Gearheads Delight … you can dig there for lost information … and you will find that the discussions still go on thanks to RFF.
