Hello LUG!

I just subscribed because I was recently given a Leica IIIc with two
collapsible lenses, 50/3.5 and 35/3.5, a 35mm finder and an apparently dead
light meter with a low-light attachment.  It is my first Leica, though I
have enjoyed a FED 2 for a few years and the joys of rangefinder

First of all, I'm desperately in need of a film take up spool!  If anyone
has a spare that they're willing to sell, please email me on or off list.
My email is  Thank you for your consideration -
I'm just chomping at the bit wanting to get shooting!

Secondly, is there any way to revive a dead light meter?  The needle jumps
up when I attach the low light attachment, but otherwise the needle rests at
the bottom of the window.  I'd imagine a replacement selenium cell (if
that's what's in it) is the answer, but I'm afraid that no one makes these.
Any thoughts?
 Or is a light meter funeral in order?

Thank you for your time.
