    I'm getting ready to sell my 67 and could not get the rewinder to work. When I pull the lever, the screw in the middle goes around, but the part surrounding it seems stuck. Any ideas? Pic of the offending part below:

    Rewinder in a Pentax 67?

    You know that you don't rewind 120/220 film, right? You just wind it forward
    to the take-up spool and then remove.

    It's been awhile but isn't that lever just a release and not a crank?

    Oops, the picture shows the camera upside down, I thought you were talking about the tabs on the bottom to remove the spools.

    Have you tried putting a spool in?

    Yeah, I put a spool and a roll of film in and tried messing with it and couldn't get it to work. I've hardly ever used it due to the cost of MF film/development, so I can't remember if it had an issue with this before. I almost think it was a little screwy before, but I got it to work. Now, I have no idea. I don't think it be worth it to send it back to Pentax for repairs, so I don't know if there is something I can do on my own to get it fixed.
