I used to have a Norma maintenance manual (and videos someone had put together) but mine seem to have been deleted and the online links to both are dead now

Does anyone have these they can share?

Also one specific question if anyone can help - how does one go about repositioning the swing lever on the 8x10 rear?
Mine is locked pointing nearly forward and I'd like to have it pointing out (perpendicular to the rail)
It seems like I'd have to get at some screws under the back tilt and would have to disassemble quite a bit to get to those?

I would also love to be able find this manual/videos - I've been searching for it too. Can't help with the the specific question though, only have a 5x7. :)

Possibly Bernice Loui will chime in - he's been showing some of his work with Norma cameras.

Yes, thank you Pere!

I have been waiting for these files to appear on this forum.

Hopefully now I can get my 5X7 into better condition by adjusting it and not by component swapping.

:cool:

While these are the files I was looking for they don't seem to cover the 8x10 rear, so if anyone knows how to access the swing lever assembly to reposition ...

Bernice is a "she". Full disclosure, I did not know that for sure until a few years ago.

Oh, bugger ... well, there has to be a first time too for making a downright stupid mistake.

Apologies, indeed!

Think I've discovered the way to adjust it - set screw accessible from the bellows side of the frame seems to hit a large slotted screw under the gg frame - but I'm not going to mess with that until I find out more

Have been wondering about too, after all Bernice Abbott was a woman..the same question I had about Sandy King long ago , thought Sandy was a woman name, apperantly not only...Sandy King is a "he"..

Best,
