Have a NOS Wollensak 210mm WF barrel lens on the way to me and have been told it can be mounted in a Copal 1 or Alphax shutter. I have someone that can provide the shutter, but mounting and working with the f/# scales (engraving) seems like it will raise price of lens/shutter combination to more than I would like to pay. Is there much mystery to mounting a lens in a shutter? What about the iris part of the lens; is that used or do you use the shutter's? I bought this primarily to use with a Speed Graphic, but the coverage is such that it would be nice to use with my Wehman 8x10. The shutter add seemed logical.
Thanks for any insights.
