1961 Asahi Pentax S3 test

by Peter Elgar

my 'original S3 ' bought 1961 in Barking. I sold it -- many years later the Bloke to whom I sold it for 25 said I could have it back " as it's NOT WORKING' . It was filthy -- I cleaned up the body then took off base-plate and lubricated all the cogs and levers with a minute amount of Sewing Machine Oil and carefully wound on and it 'creaked into life' and has been working ever since !

Don't think I've ever used my S3 - too many others to use! Yours does a grand job Peter!
