    Re: Goerz Dagor F6.8 Series III no.3

    The lens looks original to the shutter; not sure but was the rimset rapax shutter not from a later date, like the 1920's?
  2. Re: End grain glue joints versus side grain

    Yes I know how to make end to end grain strong with joinery, what I meant is that end to end glueing without any other fastening joinery (like dominos) is weak....(indeed Festool are probably the...

    Re: Linhof Dekel Shutter History

    From what I found is that indeed Linhof was first into making shutters (which one?), but I can't seem to connect his name to that of F.Deckel or to Zeiss. This is what I found:

  13. How did they blacken the metal stops & caps of the Daguerre era lenses?

    Have found a nice old lens of the Daguerre era which is missing its stop disk (is that the right word?). I guess these disks/plates were made from brass but I'm not sure since I have no original to...

    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?
  22. Re: 'Journey' in trying to build a 1850 sliding box camera

    In the meantime, acquired this little Petzval which seems to match the dimensions of the camera also because of it short focus.
