Recently discovered your forum, love it, now jumping in to ask a question, in the hopes one of you wonderful people can help me. Recently bought a Linhof Tech IV - everything was fine until I racked out the lens rail thingie to about an inch beyond the bed, then, clunk (sounded real bad) something was amiss below the rail. It seems to me on preliminary- in vestigation-not-daring-to-touch-anything that the rangefinder cam under the rail s has "come off" or something, anyway, the bed will not rack in and the camera c an't be put back unless I manually gently push this silver looking thing over. Is this normal? Seems to me I shouldn't have to do this every time I focus on infinity - the len s is a Linhof 150 btw, perhaps that has something to do with it?
I'm at a loss and wondering if anyone has any idea if I can rectify this, or if this is a 'Linhof" thing and something you learn to live with? I've used Graphics for a while now and love them, perhaps I should have stuck to that, but that Linhof looked like it couldn't live without me - hopefully you understand :-) Pat firstname.lastname@example.org
