    Re: Anybody recognize this camera?

    Very nice specimen: did you get it with the matching plateholders? The 12x9 holders seem to be more rare than the 10x15 and the 13x18 holders - took me several years to find two (one with ICA and one...

    The lens looks original to the shutter; not sure but was the rimset rapax shutter not from a later date, like the 1920's?

    Re: Linhof Dekel Shutter History

    AFAIK Linhof didn't make any shutters and didn't sell their shutter business to F. Deckel. The Compur is an advanced model of the Compound, also made / invented by F. Deckel.

    Re: tripod thread issues

    Why is it pushed up; is it sitting loose in the camera - can't it be fastened with (new/bigger) screws?
  31. Re: 'Journey' in trying to build a 1850 sliding box camera
