Speed Graphics with rear shutter: setting-up curtain & tension controls ?

Any web-based resources / videos for setting-up the rear shutter blind in "Speed" Graphic press cameras ?

I've read the service instructions provided by Graflex, and they are somewhat arcane and refer to specialized tools.

Any other resources out there ?


Thanks,

Frank

(Mods: sorry if this is posted in the "wrong" dept: it seems to me to be as relevant to Large Format as it does "Care & Repair", since this is specialized shutter arrangement, unique to LF press cameras. Thanks. LF )

Thanks - that link got me to this:

This is for the late rear-shutter Graphics, I'm working on a pre-War Graphic at the moment, but the articles are still useful.

Looks like a neat project... I will be going back to review the entire saga...
