    Re: Ansco Camera ID

    That looks to be a 5X7 Ansco, based on two observations. On the 8X10 version, the read standard is somewhat wider than the front standard. On the one you pictured the front and rear standards appear...

    Re: Cooke Portrait Lens Serial Numbers

    From the front ring of my 13" knuckler: "Taylor-Hobson Cooke Portrait Anastigmat 13inch SeriesVI f5.6 No156800".

    Any idea of the approximate year of manufacture?

  4. Re: Extending Rise on Sinar Norma Front Standards

    I'm an amateur machinist with limited skills (at least I own a lathe and a couple of mills. Maybe it is a stretch to claim to be any sort of machinist). A few weeks ago I saw a YouTube video on...
  5. Re: Extending Rise on Sinar Norma Front Standards

    My findings based on a couple of M10X1.5mm bolts and a couple of 3/8"X16 bolts (limited sample in other words) - 3/8" bolts thread into M10X1.5mm nut, but the fit is pretty loose. Sinar upright cap...
  6. Re: Extending Rise on Sinar Norma Front Standards

    Greg - Thanks so much for pointing out the one piece construction. Somehow that seems like doing it the hard way compared to making the round uprights separate pieces, but who am I to criticize the...
  7. Re: Extending Rise on Sinar Norma Front Standards

    Thanks everyone for checking on the 3/8-16 thread size. At least I no longer wonder if I'm hallucinating. It occurs to me Sinar would have needed 3/8-16 taps on hand to tap the rail clamp for the...
  8. Re: Extending Rise on Sinar Norma Front Standards

    Struan - I would much appreciate it if you can check the threads on your Norma and see what you think the size is. Part of my struggle is I don't have a metric micrometer so I have to measure in...
  9. Re: Extending Rise on Sinar Norma Front Standards

    Can anyone measure the thread for the top of the Norma uprights? I've been working on this for awhile today and I'm not finding a good answer. What threads down into my uprights for the full 17mm of...
  10. Re: Old 8X10 view camera and film holders

    Another thing I see that makes me think 7X11 is the hole just below the opening for the lens board. This is right where the lens board tightening knob is on a 7X11. One of the side views shows what...
  11. Re: Old 8X10 view camera and film holders

    There is also a possibility this is a 7X11 Eastman, not an 8X10. This camera has two tabs at the top of the front standard to hold the front bed in the folded up position. The 8X10s I'm familiar with...
  12. Re: WTB: Kodak Master View parts

    Re: SINAR reducer backs

    There is one shown in the Norma catalog as "2055 Reducing-Adapter 8X10-18X24 to 5X7-13X18", but I don't know if Norma backs fit the newer Sinar P frames. I've always wondered about that if anyone...

  18. Re: Which Graflex model for this Kodak 6 3/8 f4.5 lensboard

  19. Re: What's a good 16.5 inch lens for 8x10?

    I kept wondering about the weight of a newer Linhof Kardan 8X10. I found this page:

    Re: linhof karden film holders

  28. Re: New Member...Back into LF with a Newly acquired Linhof Technika...any info apprec

  32. Re: need help identifying mystery parts

  40. Re: Speed Graphic rangefinder arm bracket ?

    Yes, the rangefinder arm comes up against the rear of the bed brace. But not until the camera is focused (by the ground glass) to less than 3 feet. This is with a 135mm Optar lens. The closest focus...
