    No, I am. She won't talk to me. I worked in stamping plants and still have 11 fingers...

    Deardorff 11X14 SC11 Studio camera with the absolutely necessary Bi-Post stand. I think mine is from the 50's but I always tell people it's from the Great Depression and was used to make high rez Sears Catalogs. It was designed, made and sold for that purpose from 1929.

    I don't use it all the time,. but I have restored to 100% operational and plan to rearrange my studio so it's more easily used. My partner is not so helpful...

    Mine came in Crackerjack box, look up somewhere here in DIY where I describe putting it together while I was incapacitated physically.

    LF saved my life, by forcing me to do more physically and get out of the damn wheelchair. I also lost 50 lbs, I am now thinner than the pic.

    I wish I had cut the pipes 2 feet taller, but I was barely able to get this setup with help. It almost can touch my 11-1/2 ft ceiling, which is high enough, but irreversible. I cut about 5 feet off...

    I'm a 65 year old kid, going on 21.

    That's cut down from 13 feet, which may have already been shortened from 20 feet.

    Any interest in my massive 14X14? I started to strip it down for parts, but I just didn't have the heart to disassemble a camera that NASA has in its museum, so I put it all back together.

    Sorry no. This type and size of camera is NOT popular and has nearly no buyers. Very few own and use them as a labor of love.

    Albatross is their name.

    Well, put it on the for sale board. Maybe you'll get lucky.

    I'm sans cash, so even if it was free, I couldn't afford to ship it home. I also have some questions about where I would put it.

    That said, it would be so much fun to have.
