do you know where I can get a F-Scale for my Copal Shutter to complement my Sironar W-210 lens?

Thanks Marc

Hi Marc,

Try contacting the people at www.skgrimes.com. I'm not certain that they can sell you the exact aperature scale you are seeking. But, I do know that they can replace missing, or broken, aperature scales on Copal shutters, if you send the shutter to them.

Contact Mr. Bob Salomon....at HP marketing....it should be a standard part. In fact SK GRIMES will tell you that. If they don't have it....then it is time to send it to SK GRIMES.

I went through the same thing recently...and got one from Schneider.

BTW: are you looking for the top scale, the front scale or both?

Dear all,

thanks for the replies. Grimes seems to be the place to go ;-) The only problem for me is that I am located in Europe, so I contacted Schneider directly. We'll see what they say. If you happen to know someone who wants to exchange a Sinar shutter (that's what I have at the moment) for a Copal one, let me know.

Best regards Marc

Why would you contact Schneider for a scale for a Rodenstock lens? Rodenstock (Linos) is in Munich. Ypu should ask them.

Oh, that was my mistake then. Someone told me the Rodenstock line was taken over by Schneider....

Thanks for the hint,

Cheers Marc

Not even close. Rodenstock Precision Optical (the taking and enlarging lens division in this case) is owned by Linos Photonics GMBH & Co. KG and is part of their Photo and Lab Technology division which is part of the Linos Laser and Imaging Systems Division. Nothing at all to do with Schneider.
