Asahiflex repair

Hi all,
does anybody have information on how to repair these cameras? I have a couple of them with a stuck shutter. I am not interested in sending them for repair as I do not intend to use them. My guess is that the curtains are old but I have not found any information on how to replace them. Any pictures or information would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

I think most people here would not attempt to repair an Asahiflex, especially the curtains. I do recall that Eric fabricated curtains for an early Pentax, maybe an H1a. I think it was for TomB _tx.

I just sent him my AP.

Hello

Eric does fix asahiflex and he even replaces curtains. Cost for a CLA for one of these old babies varies depending on the state their in. He has done a few for me, latest repair is now shipped.

Cheers, baard-einar

Ps, I believe a common reason for stuck shutter in these models is due to broken curtains.
