  2. Re: Can someone identify this focusing accessory?

    Probably not. Both Linhof and Sinar made these, as well as possibly other manufacturers.

    Re: Methods for cutting 8x10 film down to 5x7

    I cut film down on a regular basis. I have rotary cutters of various high quality cutters. NONE work as well as one would think because they allow the film to slip.

    Unfortunately your wrench is too flexible to do the job as evidenced by the marks left when it came out of the grooves. It's too bad the best lens wrenches are no longer made. The best alternative...

    Re: what grit for ground glass

    Be careful - the way you install the fresnel may change the point of focus so that your images are out of focus.

    They are close enough in performance to go by weight. I would go with the lighter on - the 240 f9.

    "packing an axe" is no joke! Hundreds of the trees have been destroyed by people with axes, off-road vehicles, trucks, etc.

    I have one and have often thought of reducing the weight via a 1"drill bit. Then I decide the extra 1.5lb isn't that much.

    Re: Flood lights for contact printing

    A 100 watt bulb will do the job. Just move it 1/3 closer, and perhaps use a longer printing time. Also, enlarging bulbs should still be available, and a #3 is 150 watt, I believe.
