Copal Shutters-Where can I find them?greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread
I am looking for a good used working Copal O shutter. Does someone know where I might find one? Does anyone stock a variety of shutters alone? Need address or phone number. I see many lenses advertized in shutters but never shutters alone. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

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 www.bhphotovideo.com
As for second hand, try www.mpex.com or www.photoshopper.com/forum/main.html or www.buyersindex.com/brca/46.htm

Steve Grimes has advertised his services in View Camera magazine as a photographer's machinist. He has a website at http://www.skgrimes.com. 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.
