    At the risk of relieving who knows what, what is it?

    Any idea what the focal length is and what camera that monster in #3 fits?

    That driveshaft in pic #3 is an Astragon telephoto probably for 35mm or 6X6 format.
    Maybe 500 to 800 mm range. I'm guessing f/5 or so aperture.

    Million,
    That first one looks like an Calumet 8 x 10 with some sort of Schnieder lens. Can you post any other identfiers from the lens?

    Looks like the "driveshaft" says Birns and Sawyers on it , which is associated with the Hollywood film industry ...?

    It looks like a Schneider Super-Angulon 165mm in a Compur #1 shutter.
    I'm not weird. I'm limited edition.
