    Woof! These things were ugly the day they were made.

    But they were efficient and have a loving following. Some have even stipped the battleship 1950's gray paint and spar varnised the lovely maple underneath. Silk purse from a sows ear if you ask me.

    This one is unremarkable. Did the flashlight test in a dark room and didn't see any light leaking out the bellows, but the corners are definitely worn. Plan on a Morley Baer wrap, or some tape at some point.

    Of course by this time, Bunk and Junk had cleverly solved all of the worlds movement problems and this baby can tie itself into a knot.

    All in all a very usable old camera with one lens board the size for the 8 1/4" Dagor I'm selling in another ad. $155 + shipping

    Still available. Price lowered to $150 INCLUDES shipping, but only in USA. Also, if you're new to the format, I'll bet you could talk me out of a couple of 5X7 holders pretty cheap to get you going. Heck, maybe I even have a lens laying around :D:D
