Micropress Focal Plane Shutter Fabric Replacement

I have taken this link from a post on the MPP Users Group on facebook by Matt Bigwood and thought it might be worth putting on the forum or the member's area.  The article on the link below relates to a Graflex Series B camera, but could just as easily be of help to someone attempting to replace the shutter curtain on a MPP MicroPress.  Good luck to anyone brave enough to have a go.

The web page is very detailed and by the highly-regarded Jo Lommen.

I supply curtain material to one of the leading restorers in the US, he makes new curtains for 7x5 Portrait Graflex cameras, the curtain is about 5 ft long. The material used in the article doesn't have enough dimensional stability, I do use it myself for some things 😀

Usually curtains can be restored, I've restored 3 Speed Graphic curtains and shutters and a couple of Micro Press as well.
