Any anon here experience with repairing an Aires Viceroy folder camera (or the very similar Mine Six IIF)? I'm trying to clean the very cloudy viewfinder/rangefinder in mine but I can't get the advance knob off so I can remove the top cover. Pic related.
I already removed a long screw (see hole) and tried the usual 35mm camera trick of blocking the "fork" and turning the knob until it comes off, but here the knob won't budge.

Don't know if this kind of advance knob is used in other medium format folders too. Any help is appreciated.

You sure it's not a press fit on a splined shaft, with that screw to stop it coming off?

Good idea, that would make sense, but I tried lifting it off and carefully prying it up and it doesn't move one bit.

Thanks a ton for your comment anon.
Turns out the screw was completely unimportant, but the little fork thingie on the inside of the camera could be pried off the advance shaft, and then it's easy to pull out.

I see, sweet.
I pulled apart a Durst Automatica a little while ago and it nearly drove me insane.
I don't think there were two identical screws in the entire thing.
Good luck...
