    I have quite a few film cameras that need repair, calibration, cleaning lubing adjusting. I have good general mechanical aptitude and am looking for some really good books on camera repair or whole sites or forums dedicated to it, even individuals that dont mind mentoring me. Can anyone here advise me on some good camera repair resources? Im talking about film cameras from the 40s to the 80s. Some cameras I have in mind are the Kodak Medalists, Nikon SLRs and their Nikkor lenses, TLRs of the day (kodak reflex, shutters, yashica mat,) retinas, rangefinders, minolta 7s, nikkormats, lens restoration, cleaning etc.

    thanks
