    I can't seem to ever recall seeing a lenscap on an enlarging lens... But it seems I've got a PILE of rodagons, and they're needing some organization! I was thinking that the appropriately sized caps attached to the wall with hot glue might be kind of a handy way to store them, ergonomically speaking... but it begs the question... can one find lenscaps for them? easily?

    seems they're all threaded - so, in principle - it shouldn't be a problem..! anyone know about this??

    I've got a lenscap an my Rodagon. (The version with the aperture stops to be switched off, but without means to predetermine the working stop.) I guess the cap is original.
    Ask Linos. (I was looking for that rubber belt and was told that they did not stock it any longer.)

    IIRC the Rodagons have a 40.5mm filter thread. My APO Rodagon came with a rubber push fit cap marked Rodenstock.

    Most of my new enlarging lenses came with the caps on both ends or a cap on one end with a plastic base for the other .

    The used lenses from e-bay have frequently come without the caps.

    I got some replacement Schneider caps from B&H once and also got some Kaiser replacement caps from http://camerafilters.net/shopsite_sc/store/html/page33.html.

    Sounds like a great idea until the glue fails and your Rodagon drops onto the nice hard floor. Ouch!
