(Was not sure where to place this question,woops)
I wonder is there is someone still doing cams for camera/lens. The 6x9 Horseman VH-R has dedicated lenses, cams and infinity stops. Is it possible to produce or fabricate a cam to mount a Xenotar 135 mm f:3,5 (or other lenses) on this camera and continue to use the accurate range finder ?
Links and addresses will be much appreciated.

Maybe 5 or 6 years ago I had my VH-R cammed for my 100 Apo-Sironar-N and my 75/6.8 Grandagon-N. The work was done by Konny Lang of Atlantic Camera Repair in West Islip, NY. I tried to find the documentation in my files just now to verify the date, contact info, etc., but so far I've been unable to locate the papers. I don't know whether he's still in business.

The one catch was that he couldn't do it from scratch. I had to provide a couple of existing Horseman cams that were reasonably close - a 105 and a 75. What he did was to further grind the coupling surfaces to match the cams to my lenses, and he reset the infinity stops as well.
