    I have a Retina II type 011 which is in need of internal
    range/viewfinder cleaning. (belonged to a smoker)

    My question is how do you remove the advance knob so I can remove the
    top cover and gain access to the rf?

    Are there any teeny tiny little screws (or holes that could contain a set
    screw, allen, phillips, or slot) on the knob (might need a magnifying glass
    to see)? If so then a jewelers screw driver (sets of these are cheap) or
    small allen wrench might do the trick. If there is no visible securing
    fastner then it must pull off IMHO. I have not seen this camera so try this
    at your own risk!

    No set screws.

    I believe this knob is a screw-off but don't know which direction.

    I seem to recall working on a Retina years ago and had to remove the
    knob in that fashion..

    Not fair. That was a trick question. You already knew the answer. Could
    it screw off in the opposite direction from it's normal operation? That
    would seem logical to me. How about telling me how this all turns out (pun

    I can't see any other way to remove it except to screw it off. However
    I haven't figured out that part yet.

    I did find a website dealing with older Retinas and have sent an

    Sounds like a soap opera As the knob turns...

    The film advance knob uses a reverse thread. Simply grasp and twist
    clockwise to loosen.
