Dear Thomas,

B&H photographics in New York sell mail order Copal shutters. A 'O' costs $179. Don't forget that it will come without aperture markings. You would need a lens technician to do it or send it to the manufacturer. I think this costs around $60, but I don't know for sure, you would have to check. Their website is

As for second hand, try or or

Good luck

Steve Grimes has advertised his services in View Camera magazine as a photographer's machinist. He has a website at One of the services he offers is "reshuttering" lenses, mounting barrel lenses in shutters and engraving aperture scales. A good website, although he has not responded to an e-mail inquiry I made a couple weeks back.
