General Photography Discussion / EOS Slipping Main Wheel fix
« Last post by Funtera on April 15, 2017, 02:55:49 AM »
My 50D suddenly developed an issue last time in wales, I'd spin the Wheel for the Shutter speed and it'd spin without gripping.

I did some research and found an article and it suggests using Superglue (  HERE ) ... however I thought this was a bit harsh (bad dreams of gluing the damn thing to the body) and a couple of others in the Comments had the same thoughts. Someone suggested Rubbing Alcohol so I read a bit more into it.

Needless to say I picked up some Isopropyl Alcohol ( only 70% proof but not drinkable :-( ) and after pulling the Wheel out a bit and dabbing some on the Main Dial, I spun it a few times and it slipped completely , now I'm thinking I've messed up Big Time but after a couple of minutes the Alcohol and grease/gunk it's "eaten" had evaporated and it's perfect !!

I know this ain't the normal thread for in here but if this helps someone else save £179 from Canon to replace the Dial or whatever from Lehmans .. I've done some good!

Is this the only preserved example of a specific aircraft type's only active combat campaign while still in service?

I guess it's still 'as is' to warn <insert name of aggressive power> what 'we' can do if they mess around.... Or at least what we would like them to think we could do!

I'm sure that having a bomber designed to carry Nukes turning up stealthily off their coastline must have sent a few shivers down those Nazi-hiders spines.

I hope I'm not wrong but if I have got my facts right then those 21 craters should be celebrated because nobody was killed in creating them & just one of them saved countless lives (on both sides).

They should put a plaque on that - and have a Union Jack flying  ;)
