Re: Leitz wetzlar orthoplan 402a condenser does not rotate

It totally worked! Got the turret up and running again and everything is working again except for the centring screws of the condenser. I turn and turn them, but the light is not moving at all :(. Do any of you have any tips on how to fix this?
