    Keith, I suspect you're right about f/6.8 Graphic Raptars. But there are also f/4.5ers. I have a 138/4.5 Graphic Raptar. Tessar type, lousy.

    Thank you Keith, I will test it sooner or later on 11X14 1 to 1 and at infinity on 7X17.

    I got it from the Estate of a collector. He was active from 1950 to 2000 and had a bit of everything.

    Boy, I'd love to have a 2" verito for 35mm.

    Very nice work! Any info on the Oscillo-Raptor? I have the 88mm 1.4 and would love to see a lens diagram for it...

    I have 2 of those.

    Never used them, they came in a bundle.

    The 88mm f/1.4 Oscillo Raptar drawing is included in the Surplus Shed CD of scanned Wollensak Optical drawings. The lens is symmetrical, each cell having four elements in three groups.

    The CD is available at: https://www.surplusshed.com/pages/item/W1005.html. It goes on sale occasionally.

    Going back to the earlier Cine Verito post, thank you very much, Mark, for the reference and great detective work. For the purpose of keeping the scope and upkeep within my abilities, I’m going to limit the online Compendium to the original charter of commercial lenses and shutters for still cameras. However, I am thrilled to see other notable Wollensak references added to this thread.

    Here's a quick question. I have a Wollensak 12 in Velostigmat barrel lens mounted to a Packard shutter. It came with a early 40's Deardorff V8. What are the lens flange specifications? I have a 12 inch Enlarging Raptar that has the same threads, fits the same flange. I know the costs would be prohibitive, but would these mount to a number 5 Alphax shutter? Are there flanges available? I bought the enlarging lens thinking the 2 metal lens caps were worth the 25 bucks I paid. Lo and behold I got a perfect Enlarging Raptar, looks mid 50's or newer. To make a lens like that today in the free world would cost 3000 bucks
    Best Regards Mike

    Mike, sorry for the delay in replying, but both your 12” Velostigmat and 12” enlarging Raptar cells should fit directly into an Alphax (or Betax) #5 shutter, no adapter needed. Both should also take a standard Wollensak #5 flange.
    S.K. Grimes makes these new for $65, or sometimes n.o.s. Burke and James versions pop up on eBay for about $30.

    If you’re in the market for a shutter, you can send me a PM.
