    I'm looking for a rear (back) rail for my shaggy old Kodak 2D.
    Without more bellows draw, it's hard to evaluate my 500mm wollaston lenses.
    Condition is not important, I'm real handy with c-clamps, glue, and air nailers...

    I've seen rear back extension boxes, maybe 4", on ebay for like $40.

    A 2D with the original bellows will hardly draw 500mm. I had trouble with 450mm.
    You will *also* want one of those extension boxes on the lens board mount or rear extender for the film plane.

    That's good to know, thanks folks.
    I guess I'll have to oil up the chainsaw...

    Perhaps there are different versions of the bellows. I had no problem getting around 750mm of extension with mine.
