    The white piece at the rear is a new piece of wood the replace the original that most of the screws would not hold. The other piece is because the the tripod support plate did not give enough support for the camera. It is a piece of plywood that ran from front to rear of the tracks and the width of the tracks.
    It was so long ago the lens might have been a wollensak.

    Great camera, great picture: thanks! I use the same plywood support base with mine.

    With the Compound shutter, could the lens have been a Turner Reich Series II 11x14? It covers the 12x20 format nicely and bears a strong resemblance in the photo.

    Now that mention it I think you are correct. I even used it on my Eastman 2-D. I think I used the wollensak on the 8x10 and also with the 4x10 Back I had.

    A probably German tailboard camera, in 13x18 format. It's lens is a Rodenstock Recti-Aplanat f8 210mm, mounted in an unnamed (but German) roller-blind shutter. The serial number in the lens puts it c.1910-1912.

    Patiently waited for UK Bellows to send me a new set, finally here. She’s back up and running.

    "Spare Parts" 8x10

    I have a "new" camera, and I'm very pleased. I was cruising EBay and came across an old-style, Oschwald (sic?) era Arca 8x10 conversion kit for less than $400. It didn't take long to slam dunk it. (Buy It NOW!!!)

    Some time ago, I had purchased ($225?) an Oschwald era Arca 4x5 just for the black function carriers (rare), and I was left with a bunch of spare parts. Combining these with the 8x10 conversion kit gave me the camera shown. I originally had just a single 40cm rail. So today, a local metal sculptor was nice enough to cut it at the 19cm mark to give me the two rails shown. This camera doesn't have much front rise, so I will purchase an Arca accessory to raise the format frame. When additional rise is needed, it can be easily inserted.

    If one were to line up all the Arca 8x10 conversion kits from the old to those currently being sold, I think that this is the one I would select. While the rear standard has only rise and focus, the rear format frame and function carrier are combined as one single, solid piece. This camera is rock solid and exhibits no vibrations, tuning fork or otherwise. (Even at full extension.) Without the lens, this camera weighs 13 lbs.

    Full bellows extension is about 490mm. To accommodate a 610mm lens, I can lengthen this extension by using the rear 4x5 standard and a bag bellows that I have (remaining in my spare parts) in front of the front standard shown in the image.

    In the past, I've begun threads on some interesting modifications to Sinar and Norma cameras and related 4x5, 5x7, and 8x10 equipment. It's been fun to experiment with this versatile camera system; but, it will all soon be displayed on the For Sale forum.

    Eastman View Camera No. 2

    I dusted off a very very old friend, my Eastman View Camera No. 2


    Manufactured by Eastman Kodak Co., Rochester, N.Y., U.S.A. #16924

    8x10 View Camera

    I don't know too much about it but seems to have been manufactured between 1914-1923 : www.piercevaubel.com/cam/ekc/2.htm</a>

    Graphic-Kowa 1:9 / 305mm mounted on her at the moment that I need to give a spin.

    These are nice cameras. It looks like you have substantial rise, and with the shift on the front, and tilt and swing on the rear, they're a capable camera.

    I had a Kodak 2D one time that was similar. But mine may have had a replacement bellows, because with any significant rise, the bellows intruded on the image.
