Tom Abrahamsson of RapidWinder.com It is almost never that an inventor improves on a Leica product so that it is better than the original Leica product. Tom holds that distinction with his RapidWinder for Leica M rangefinders -- a bottom mounting baseplate trigger advance. In addition Tom manufacturers other Leica accessories such as his very popular Soft Release and MiniSoftRelease shutter releases. Tom is well known as one of the true Leica rangefinder experts, even by Leica. IMPORTANT READ THIS: CWE Forum hosts have moderation powers within their forum.

Broken Rapidwinder

I was shooting and felt the belt snapped. I opened it up and confirmed it didnít slip off or anything but torn at one end. Is there a designated repair shop with parts for the Rapidwinder?

I have another Rapidwinder and I get uneven frame spacing using it. The spacing seems to go in cycles: too wide, normal, paper thin, normal, too wide, repeat. I understand from an old post from Tom that it can be fixed.

Check the site (I think it's still up) and reach out to Tuulikki via email. I see advertising stuff here but not sure how she is doing. She is a wonderful person and if she can help I know she will.
