    Re: 11x14 Deardorff Studio Camera

    Just mounted an E KRAUSS PARIS TESSAR F6.3 50CM on my SC11, using a new Zimba 8" board. Installed the very heavy flange behind the 1/2" thick lens board to move CG to better advantage. 7 lb 6 0z!

    and not the heaviest lens I have tried on it

    Thanks Jim Graves!

    That looks like a very interesting lens!
    May tomorrow be a better day.

    Nice! I have been looking for a long Tessar like that. I was hoping for a f4.5 version, but haven't seen one in years that I can afford.

    Holy Moley, that's beautiful! Good idea with putting the flange back. I got a 8x8 board from Zbigniew today. I showed my wife. She was impressed. My camera is coming along, I have a section of bellows that are old but they were never used. One section has a half dozen pin holes, I will use a couple drops of shoe goo for now. I was in contact with Turner over the years about a couple things, too late for this project.

    I'm trying to pace myself. With the virus, I will just need to stay home and clean and polish

    Nice 50 cm lens!

    I recently had Custom Bellows make 2 new sections of bellows for a friends S11, they cost 200 pounds per section, not including shipping. The quality is superb, as always.

    I got a nice lens board from Zbigniew earlier in the week, finally took the time to mount this nice 'ol lens. Fun way to spend my time. My machinist is hoping to get to my part so I can get the stand back together.

    I wonder if the virus will shut down everything for a time?? I can get by fine for a while. Things have changed so fast!

    I've been building an adapter to fit my Folmer and Schwing 11x14 back to the Deardorff.

    Image is a 2X? image of a crystal of Calcium Fluoride. I tested my table saw skills on this one. You can see the profile I had to cut. I used Maple. Still need to stain and paint insides black. I have to wait until I can get to a decent hardware store. Weekends are no travel time for me.
