    Dimensions of Rangefinder Cam for Horseman 985 90mm Lens

    I am looking for the rangefinder cam (the plate which links the lens to the rangefinde) for the 90mm lens of the Horseman 985. Actually I would only need the dimensions of it to make it myself. If anybody has this part, it would be great to give me the dimensions, so I can make it myself.

    Have you found the dimensions yet? I have one that I can use for measurement.

    If it's anything like the Graflex or Linhof cams, you're going to need a high-res scan/proper dimensioned blueprint of the original part. The contour of the surface the follower rides on is critical. Mess it up and your RF may be accurate at some distances but not others.
