a few months ago, i've been crawling up on ebay to get good deals for LF stuff.
since i have a symmar-s 180mm on a sinar DB lensboard i decided to look for a copal 1 shutter so i can use it without switching elements to my symmar 210mm copal 1 shutter. so i looked for one. i found a cheap one with an old lens on it.. first, i didn't care about the lens. got it for less than $50. shutter is an old type version. then after weeks i found out that i couldn't use the symmar-s lens on this shutter since the aperture scale starts at 6.3 i checked the lens and it's a 210mm commercial astragon 6.3. i found out that this lens can cover upto 8x10 with minimal movement but i can't seem to find any images taken with the lens. luck or not?
1. is it possible to have my symmar-s 180mm on this copal 1 shutter without any problem?
2. would be changing aperture scale of the shutter solve the problem? where can i get one? maybe somewhere online these aperture scales for each shutters and lenses are available? if not whatelse should i do?
3. just leave the astragon on the shutter and find another shutter for my symmar s? a good solution?
