    The bellows had been ruined because of the crating.

    You have it all.

    The rotating glass film carrier is nice, good for fine adjustment.

    There is also an 8X10 glass-less carrier that uses spring tension. It does not rotate.

    Do you have the Saltzman catalog? It shows all options

    It also has a extension tube with a universal iris clamp(max to 70mm).
    Is there a detailed instruction? I need it.
    I found there's a bulb (light) near the lens board. I don't know its usage.

    I do not know of any instruction manual.

    Most things can be figured out.

    The lamp by the lens board may be for seeing the lens aperture in a 'dark room'

    There's no large space.
    Did your Saltzman come with the adjustable table or was that lost in history ?

    One of mine has an 4' x 8' glass table installed at about 24" high off the floor on a custom steel stand. Table is fixed (of course ... )

    Cheers,

    Mine has a stand with about a dozen bubble levels and leveling legs. 24" high seems right.

    Re: More Saltzman

    Here is my Saltzman platform.

    The silver colored part is made level by adjustment screws to the stand below (yellow).

    The printing platform (~32" x40") goes on top of this. Alignment is a simple bottom-up procedure and of course the negative platform has adjustments. It is all typical of government hyper-specification.

    Here is a 180 view of the opposite end.

    The platform and the rest of the parts languish in storage. I have nowhere to install it.
