  1. Re: When was Wisner Tech Field 4x5 #941 built?

    941. That seems very familiar. I think I may have once owned that camera. Or it may be a very similar number to the one I had. It was nine-something-one. That sure sounds like it. But I bought mine...

    Pieter, Did you try a soak in a Photo Flo solution? Although the dawn detergent may be close, perhaps the photo flo would have something 'extra'..

    Re: Inexpensive LOUPE for focus?

    Isn't that about the same magnification of the popular Toyo loupe? I've used that for many years...But now I mostly use the longer Horseman loupe..I forget what magnification it is. I'm tempted to...
  4. Re: Kodak Supermatic aperture scale question.

    Mr. Fromm, You have just saved me a tremendous amount of time. Thank you very much! I have been looking at photos of 105 mm face plates wondering how to measure. You saved the day. Thank you!!
  5. Re: Kodak Supermatic aperture scale question.

    Very in interesting. Thank you Bob. That would make perfect sense, especially with the Century back which is a ground glass and a Fresnel in it's assembly. The combination would make a considerable...
  6. Re: Kodak Supermatic aperture scale question.

    Steve, You are a genius. I was hoping I would receive an answer that did not require a lot of math. You have come to the rescue. If this has worked well for you with chromes I will be on easy street...
  7. Kodak Supermatic aperture scale question.

    OK. I have a nice Kodak 105mm 3.7 Ektar. I use this on my 2x3 Century Graphic. For reasons I won't bore you with, the Supermatic shutter the lens is in now is from a Kodak 127mm 4.7 Ektar. I no...

    Re: Kodak Photo Guide Question...

    I've never seen a Calumet scale. But the photo guides are very handy. I do not know what I did with mine. I just bought a 'new' one, which means my old one will turn up any day now.

    Thank you...

    Thank you Mark. Yes, I am sure it's coated as some of it appears to be slightly rubbed off..and what's there is plenty blue.

    Turner Reich Triple Conv. date..

    OK, I just got my 'new' Gundlach Turner Reich Series II 5x7 Triple Convertible lens. Its 7 1/2, 12 and 15 inches. It's a real beauty. It's looks coated and in an Ilex No. 3 Acme shutter. The...
  21. Re: Ilex No. 3 Universal shutter retaining ring size..

    Problem solved..Thanks to all!!
  22. Re: Ilex No. 3 Universal shutter retaining ring size..

    Thank you Dan...That's what I was thinking. The Ilex No. 3 (non-Kodak) seems to be such a common shutter that it's strange that flanges and retaining rings are difficult to locate.
  23. Re: Ilex No. 3 Universal shutter retaining ring size..

    Thank you Eric, I used to do that but I would feel so much better if I just get a ring...But Thank You!
  24. Re: Ilex No. 3 Universal shutter retaining ring size..

    Exactly. And the one on the Bay looks as if it has quite fine pitched threads...so I think I will pass on that. I may have to get a new one from Grimes. I am hoping against hope...
  25. Re: Ilex No. 3 Universal shutter retaining ring size..

    Hi Dan, That's what I was thinking. I don't want to buy the one a the Bay unless I know if it is the Kodak or not. It would be a different ring, right..I am really getting confused now!
  26. Re: Ilex No. 3 Universal shutter retaining ring size..

    Thank you David. I did find that and am watching it and will probably get it. The guy does not take returns so I have to decide if it's the correct one! There is a Kodak Ilex and the pitch on those...
  27. Re: Ilex No. 3 Universal shutter retaining ring size..

    Thank you! Yes, Grimes says the ring is 1.915 inches, or 48.6mm. I am wondering it a 49mm ring would work...I just don't want to spend a lot on a new one!
  28. Ilex No. 3 Universal shutter retaining ring size..

    OK, I just made an impulse buy on a Turner Reich 6.8 Series II 5x7 triple convertible lens in a No. 3 Ilex Universal shutter. It will need a retaining ring or flange. In my search it looks as if it...

    Go to an auto supply store and look for what they might have in the way of oil filter removers. Get two, one for the can and one for the lid. It might work!
  32. Re: Friedrich Muchen enlarging lenses...

    Thank you Dan. Yes, I saw that the Coronar 6.8 was a triplet but that the 4.5 (and 4.7) are a tessar. I am wondering what the difference is between the Axinon tessar and the Coronar tessar. I wonder...
