Ask Jon for all 3 kits for the RB67.Thanks for all the info I think I will try the Goodman kit.
I noticed that my back's seals were deteriorated for a long time but I haven't noticed any fogging. Are these really necessary?
The back door for the RB film holder has a turned edge which fits into a groove on the insert so deteriorated seals don't mean an instant light-leak...EXCEPT for the seal that protects the hinge. There is no flange and groove system here so raw daylight is kept out only by the integrity of the foam seal.I noticed that my back's seals were deteriorated for a long time but I haven't noticed any fogging. Are these really necessary?
If you're going to spend the time to fix it, do it right , get a seal kit. By using the proper seal kit you have a much better chance for good longevity and no worries about the material degrading and falling apart all over your film. Contact Jon Goodman he is a member here and great to work with. The seal kits don't cost much, they have full instructions with pictures.Mine are just the Pro. I do see the seals are worn along the hinge. What can I stick in there to make it better?
