    Re: post "in Galli style"

    Here is an image taken with my 15.5" Velostigmat with the defuser maxed out after removing the small screw. BTW the 11x14 Vitax lens has long ago been moved to a better home where one of the forum...
  2. Re: Dating 24" Darlot Pill Box and your thoughts about it

    here are more and hopefully clearer pictures of the lens edge. The "Darlot" is light in pencil on the edge. Next to Darlot is "Paris". Then a symbol or initials, not sure what, maybe some Steve,...
  3. Re: Dating 24" Darlot Pill Box and your thoughts about it

    Yes Steve, you hit the nail on the head....the lid is soldered on and there isn't any trace of a thread. It must have started as part of a large petzval or cobbled by someone who had various parts. ...
  4. Re: Dating 24" Darlot Pill Box and your thoughts about it

    I truly appreciate the benefits of your knowledge. I know the edge of the lens has “Darlot” penciled. I will take a closer look this weekend and post better pictures of the lens edge.
  5. Re: Dating 24" Darlot Pill Box and your thoughts about it

    Thank you Mark. That is a very helpful description. It made my “light bulb” come on.
  6. Re: Dating 24" Darlot Pill Box and your thoughts about it

    If the FL is measured from the Waterhouse slot to the image on the wall it would be 28 inches and 23 inches from rear of lens.
  7. Re: Dating 24" Darlot Pill Box and your thoughts about it

    I agree it is a professional cobble. I may not have calculated its FL correctly. Need to get it on lensboard and try it out. Attached more pics for analysis....I appreciate everyone's input.
  8. Re: Dating 24" Darlot Pill Box and your thoughts about it

    Hi Steve,
    The lens is approximately 93.472 mm or 3.68 inches in diameter. The waterhouse slot has a "pocket" or "sleeve" the for the aperture stop to be held in place. So could use a post-it paper...

  12. Re: Any thoughts on how to make Sichel Studio Camera usable?

    Louis, the thought crossed my mind too that it was an enlarger. Some google search did show this company did make enlargers too.

    Re: Lerebours Serial Number - Rice Writing

    went back and reviewed the earlier posts and it appears my lens was made after 1855, but before 1860 since it uses the "washer" system.
