    It is in Western North Carolina, near Boone to be specific.

    My general rule is 500 miles one way for LF gear

    1 day out

    1 day to fiddle

    1 day back

    but I don't need it

    I have been your way 40 years ago

    Thanks for replying

    Thanks for getting the back on it's way FedEx ground. The bill of shipment says that the box (wood) and packaging, including the back weigh 40 lbs. Very nice. That camera is worth money for the parts. My camera was missing some simple brass shim like bushings. Fortunately I found an amazing guy, real old school machinist that made some for me. This stuff is so much fun.
    Best Regards Mike

    I wish I could go get it....but it's just too far at the moment. If anyone from the Midwest is going to NC and is willing to get it a bit closer, I'd be very grateful. Currently, it's 802 miles away. If we can get that down to about 400....
    May tomorrow be a better day.

    I donít know if you found a solution for your levelers, but these might have potential. https://www.carrlane.com/product/han...mps-large-foot

    They are steel, soft, that were attached with a press, or by a skilled person. There's things like this available today, I found one that is very similar but too "thick" if I had a milling machine, it would be an easy alteration. My machinist, got the damn Covid, I need to check again see how he's doing.
    My camera is on carpet so it's not an issue. Mine has 2 of the pads, all of the original knows. I'm trying to keep it all original. Such a beautiful machine.

    Yes Roger!

    the 5/8-11 has an option for a 'foot' that will work well

    That weight is probably a bit high. With the new dimensional weight system they use, you don't pay any extra until you get over 50 pounds, and I don't have a scale for weighing things over a pound or two, so I just estimate high. But it is certainly sturdy!

    OK, that makes sense.
