Asahi Shutter Tester
Posted By: jatrax, 08-18-2014, 08:52 PM

Well here is something you do not see everyday: Vintage Asahi Pentax Shutter Tester 437 218833 228910 from Japan | eBay

I would be tempted just for the historic value if I had anyplace to put it.

I'm pretty sure this seller bought the junk bin from the old Pentax Canada service dept. gear. Tons of Pentax parts, as well as bizarre things like an Auto 110 focus tester!

Been watching this guy's auction items for a week now.. some of it would be interesting to buy short of the high shipping fees he has attached to most of them.

Looks pretty "vintage". The shutter tester we used at Olympus in the mid-1980's was digital.
