John: The old Ilex shutters were pretty reliable. They were built for professional use, so they hold up well.

Steve Grimes has a page on Ilex shutters on his web site (www.skgrimes.com).

If you go to the front page of this LF site there is an article about shutters. The Ilex isnt bad but the Wollensak shutters were a little better made

Grimes warns against the dial set Ilex shutters. The rim set shutters are fine, but not as accurate as modern shutters in general. I have two lenses in recently serviced Ilex shutters and don't have any problems with them.
