    Now with a new front standard to replace the bit that's missing, and a brand new focus screen :D

    Mk I bellows were to thick, so Mk II are under construction as are two missing brass bits, one to control front rise/fall. In addition I've bought a 6x7 roll film back which I'll make an adaptor for.

    A Thornton Pickard shutter is nearly restored which will fit on the lens.

    Someone is making the missing brass parts. I received initial plastic CNC versions today which are perfect so soon it's all go.

    I've made another lens board and fitted a coated Rodenstock 105mm f3.5 Trinar which will be great when used with the Graflex 6x7 back that arrived from nr San Diego last week :D

    I've also fully restored a Thornton Pickard shutter which gives 4 or 5 shutter speeds as well as T, and that fits the front of the lens. TP shutters were made to fit between lens & camera or push on the front of the lens. I've now restored 4, making new blinds and missing parts.
