SHUTTERS and CAMERAS FITTED WITH THE MODEL "S" SYNCHRONIZERS:SUPERMATIC
3 ¼ x 4 ¼ and 5x7 GRAPHICS,
B and J, Linhoffs. 9x12 Recomar,
2 ¼ x 3 ¼ Graphic etc.
The HEILAND Synchronizer coils can be easily fitted to Supermatic shutters if the following directions are followed closely. The synchronizer can be used at all shutter speeds from 1 sec to l/400th sec. and on the later model shutters the coil can be used to open the shutter on time and bulb.COMPUR, COMPOUND, ILEX, ACME
The HEILAND Synchronizer can be used with all the above shutters and at all speeds from 1 sec. up. The installation methods are the same with the exception that some of the Ringset Compur shutters require the installation of a small return spring (A) Fig. 3 on the shutter tripping lever as shown in the diagram. Any competent shutter repairman can install the spring.
All screws and nuts necessary for mounting are furnished "with the synchronizer. Uses of the screws shown in drawing are (Fig. 4):
A--Two 2-56-3/8 th screws and nuts used to fasten coil to the lens board.
B--One 3-48 flat head screw and nut used to mount camera clip. C--One 3-48 round head screw and nut used to mount camera clip,
D--Three 2-56-1/8 th round head used to fasten lens flange.
E--One S shaped hook used on Supermatic shutters.
F--Not furnished. Will exchange without charge for --E--, CO be used when installing coil on, early Supermacic shutters.
1. Remove tens flange. If flange is on front of lens board merely unscrew shutter. If flange is on back of lens board, the shutter will probably have a pin preventing die shutter from turning. If so, it will be necessary to use a special tool to unlock the flange, or if no tool is at hand you may lock the flange in a vise and turn the lens board and shutter together. (Caution must be used to prevent damage to the lens elements. If you prefer you may remove the elements.) If flange has three screw holes, drill three holes centered between each of the original holes with a No.5l drill. Tap these with a 2-56 tap. If flange has four screw holes, drill only two holes exactly opposite each other. Tap these with 2-56 tap Fig 5.
2--REMOVE SHUTTER LOCKING PIN
Some Supermalic shutters have a small locking screw (A) Fig. 6 in die back of the shutter. This screw should be removed so the shutter may be flat against rhe board. If your Supermatic shutter has a small metal projection near the threads (B) on die back of the shutter, this must be filed off to allow die shutter to lie flat on a metal lens board. If a Compur shutter, you will find a similar stud screw. This should be replaced or filed so the shutter will lie flat on the lens board. (fig.7)
