I know from searching that this topic has been discussed here before, but I wanted to see if there's any new wisdom about it: I have a 120 rollfilm holder that has developed the problem of uneven spacing of exposures--on one end of the roll, they're maybe 5mm apart, and at the other end, they've worked their way closer together and eventually overlapped. I understand that this is frequently a result of misalignment of the beginning of the roll, or an accumulation of crud in the gear train of the winding mechanism, or both. What's the best way of opening these up, cleaning out the gunk and reassembling them, short of sending them off to a Graflex specialist? Is there a manual or diagram that would help me with this?
