    Shop Made Gear Rack and Base on Ansco 8x10

    16" Veritar f6 lens on shop made lens board. Since the geared focusing works great I have most of the work done rebuilding this camera. I still haven't decided if I want to re-paint it or strip it down to the cherry wood.

    Oh so nice! If it were me, I'd leave the cherry stripped and maybe rub in a bit of watco or tongue oil (giving plenty of time to cure as either can be a bit oily for awhile!) - with a bit of judicious waxing of the moving/sliding bits.

    Ikeda Anba 4x5, Cherry, Gold Plate, Red Bellows
    One of the prettiest large format cameras I have seen!

    A recent addition. These lenses I've had for a while now but I want to get some that fold with the camera without having to unmount my Crown Graphic lenses from their lens boards.

    I recently picked up this 1968 Super Technika V from Linhof Studio. It has been fully serviced and has new bellows and ground glass. Product shot by Linhof Studio.

    I suggest leaving the Cherry, and just giving it a nice clear coat.

    Naked Crown Graphic--a stripped down version of the classic press camera. (I didn't make up this term, but it seems apropos for a stripped down camera).

    What I bought--camera body, no lens, no back, no rangefinder, no optical viewer, no leather handle, no infinity stops, no flash, body shutter release inoperable; basically rescued from the trash heap. Bellows with pinholes. Original Moroccan leather dry, cracked, peeling and with copper oxide blisters. Modifications: finished stripping the leather and refinished the mahogany underneath (sanded, applied clear coat finish), patched bellows pinholes with a mixture of Elmer's glue and ashes from my fireplace plus tape inside and painted the outside with glossy black fabric paint from Michael's craft store, found an old Graphic spring back and installed, removed the steel plate for the body-mounted shutter and filled in the hole and covered that and the door/base with kidskin leather from Tandy. I also modified the lens board frame, twisting out the aluminum light trap and lining the inside with felt so I could use my own wooden lensboards, added a top leather handle as a throwback to the 1920s "top handle" Speed Graphic design. It's rugged, works fine for its limited capabilities, and I don't mind shooting with it in urban settings where I might not feel comfortable with the flashy Ikeda Anba, above.

    I love that it's much lighter weight than the fully equipped versions--weighs less than 3lb w/o lens, I can keep a lens on it so it opens and sets up fast, and I can shoot hand-held with the wire sports viewer. It's just useful, and it works. Also, press lenses are good quality, cheap, easy to find. I can carry 3 or 4, including 90mm, 127, and 203 for a good range of composition options.
