  1. Re: Gandolfi 8x10 Precision Folding Instruction and Date Questions...

    Sounds like you did very well. Congratulations.
  2. Re: Gandolfi 8x10 Precision Folding Instruction and Date Questions...

    Gandolfi cameras are unusual to find, even rare (to use that obnoxious word) but for some reason, at least in the U.S., they've not acquired the same following as Deardorff.

    Personally, I think...

    As Karl said, the latches/brackets at the bottom of the standard hold it in place.

    Take the Sexton class/workshop first, then make your decision. The more information you have for making a purchase/investment, the better.

    Re: 11x14 affordable lenses

    My first lens for 11x14 was a Kodak 21" anastigmat. Bought it in barrel from Stephen Shuart. But that was back around 1983. Perfectly capable lens which covered 11x14 effortlessly. I still like it...
  10. Re: Advice re: lens and perspective for 8x10

    Variation on a theme. Just another Cooke. This is the Series XV, the old version of the XVa on a Gandolfi 8x10.

    Maybe not such a simple repair. And "inexpensive machinist" is an oxymoron. You get what you pay for, sometimes less. Charges usually start at 1 hour of basic shop time and go up.
