Overhauling a Pentax K1000 camera (video)

Overhauling a Pentax K1000 camera video by the Camera Repair Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia:

“This is a selection of recordings taken during a 3-4 hour overhaul of a Pentax K1000 film camera. The K1000 was available new in stores from 1976 all the way up to 1996.
