The Professional Cameraman's Handbook doesn't show the screw in a picture, and I'm having trouble getting the shutter locked in place on this camera. BTW, it's adjustable from 35 to 200 degrees! Amazing!

If I'm unable to tighten it down, will the shutter eventually slip? it seems pretty darned snug (very hard to move with the shutter adjust knob, but possible).

The shutter of the cameflex is locked with a screw.
The screw is very differant of the six others on the shutter.
It is necessary of tighten down partially this screw before use of the "obturateur" knob.
See the two manuals, the french (this is not a original) and the english translation for the "how to "
I have the cameflex 16/35.

Thanks so much for the link to the manual. After contacting the previous owner it seems that he was unaware of the existence of that screw and adjusted the shutter angle without moving it. Sigh. After translating this, it seems it must be damaged and that's why I can't tighten the shutter down anymore.

English:
Latch-tightening screw of the adjustable obturator (TO BE LOOSENED IMPERATIVELY BEFORE REGLAGE Of the ANGLE Of OBTURATION).

Vis de blocage de l'obturateur réglable ( A DESSERRER IMPERATIVEMENT
AVANT REGLAGE DE L'ANGLE D'OBTURATION).
