    As I refurb my cameras I have been taking pictures and notes.
    Using MS Word 2013 I create PDF docs.

    One note that I picked up recently ... if you have any 3.5" floppy disks, rip them apart to get the spring as I can be used to replace those tiny springs in those old shutters and release mechanisms.
