    I am trying to clean up some space.
    This is a project that never materialized.

    Beater 4X5 speed graphic with 161mm F4.5 lens.


    Condition:

    missing leatherette on front and back panels.
    Ground glass has a nice grid, but is fairly dark.
    Lens is in fair condition, shutter works surprisingly well in almost all speeds, it does take a second or two for the cocking wind the correct speeds between shots, but then fires as it should. I guess this is how the old shutters work, also has a self timer~!
    Curtain focal plain shutter works, but as you can imagine has nothing to do with actual speeds. I think if it is exercised enough it will come back to life.
    Bellows needs some work, flaking here and there.
    Bed drops nicely, all locks, gears levers and movement on this camera is perfect working condition.
    I am guessing the rangefinder is calibrated for 135mm as it is slightly out of position compared to ground glass.

    It is what it is - a beater 4X5, that could be a cool shooter with only a little bit of care.
    Fix it up or use it for parts.

    Asking 150$+ shipping

    Paypal OK, i pay the fees. International shipping extra please ask.
