    Dan's wonderfully useful 1890 Benjamin French & Co. Catalog says this is 10 1/2" focus and covers full plate for portraits or 8X10 in the field!

    The patina on this one is just magnifique. I love it. Glass is gorgeous.

    You loosen the lock and slide the tube forward to access the waterhouse slot that normally stays hidden underneath out of any stray light path. I do not have any stops. They can be carefully made with old broken dark slide phenolic
