With a face only a mother could love, my Kodak 35 RF is from 1945
When I was doing a repair I had the top plate removed. It seemed rather cheaply manufactured. There are two mirrors on the top with a simple arm controlling one mirror as the arm inside the front protrusion is activated while turning the lens to focus. Probably to be competitive and make a profit is the reason for the stamped metal parts. It does sport a great lens though and the Bakelite body is in great condition too.
The main mirror had fallen off up in the top of the camera. I took off the top plate and glued the mirror back on and cleaned the rest of the optics and adjusted the infinity on the rangefinder. I also cleaned and lubed the film sprocket gears. I cleaned the exterior.
