1014XL-S Gate Widening

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I've got a 1014XL-S I was thinking about widening the gate on. I don't really care about modifying the viewfinder to match the new frame or anything.

Is widening the gate as simple as removing it, and filing away the 0.5mm or so from the proper side? Are there any risks (Obvious or not) that I should be aware of?

Title wasn't specific enough

That is about it 🙂   Make sure it is smooth and mind the springs and feelers who protrude through the gate metal at several positions.
