This Camera belonged to my father, I've only used one time--(needs bellows replaced ) I was wondering if any of you guys would know who made this

It has a double extension bed, the lens board size is 6 5/8 x 6 5/8

The handle looks like a suit case handle

It weighs about 16 pounds

It has a gear double front rise

any help would be appreciated 21386

I think Peter is right, that looks like the Eastman Commercial Camera. Here is a link;

David, thanks for the link. I have one of these. They're clearly a quality camera, although mine would need to be restored.
