    I know you've been waiting 10 years for an answer! The Deardorff 14 x 14 ERC Copy Camera has an 18 7/8" square outside dimension. Could that be it?

    There are at least 2 Deardorff cameras that use the 18.5" square back.

    My SC11 is one.

    Question, I picked this up last week. A Deardorff 11x14 commercial camera. Has a rotating 8x10 back. According to a 1939 Deardorff document the 11X14 will take a 13 inch lens as minimum focal length. I have the extra bellows ( not installed here) looks like to get down to a 14 inch lens I will need to take out the center section shown here on this camera. These are absolutely amazing machines for technical work. I see why these were used for catalogs and technical photos.

    Is it practical to take out the center support to use this as a "portrait" camera with a 14 inch Nikkor W? I have a Folmer and Schwing 11X14 that will work great on the stand as well. My other option is I have a nice 19 inch "red dot" Artar and a Packard shutter.

    Advice and information please!

    I have figured out how to remove center bellows.

    I can use it with a 12 inch lens for 1/3 life size no problem. Still lots of puzzles to solve.

    All comments and advice will be much appreciated.
    Best Regards Mike

    I removed one from the rear standard. It looks like someone lost the front ones. I went to a local machinist who ordered a piece from Mcmaster Carr. He's going to make me 3 or 4.
    Here's the part, it's more of a bushing of sorts, held in place with some tiny slotted set screws.

    It's been 6 years since I took mine apart, so don't recall every bit

    I can again, but it seems you have it under control

    Let us know if you need anything further
