The Signet series was Kodak's top American-made 35mm camera line in the 1950's. It is one of only two Signet models that contains a range finder, and the only one not made mostly of plastic.
When using my camera, the rewind turn dial is hard to turn and is stiff.
The camera could have faulty dials that may need to be replaced or adjusted. Check the troubleshooting page for more information: Kodak Signet 35 Troubleshooting.
