You're right RobertP, the longer Series III's remained f:7.7 after the redesign. So even when the name was changed to Dagor these were still f:7.7. I think I've seen a 360mm f:6.8 Dagor though, and even a 420 might just fit in a Compound #5 shutter. There might also be differences between Goerz US and Goerz Germany - especially after the latter was bought by Zeiss. :)

Ole, My 16 1/2" is an American Optical Double- Anastigmat Series III 7a F7.7. I use to have the chart for all the serial numbers but I can't find it anywhere. My serial numbers put this lens around 1903 if I remember correctly. Its in an Ilex 5 shutter.

In other words - the confuscation is optimal. :)

I found the serial number list. It is from Eddie Bolsetzian, an ex Goerz tech. Mine is serial number 120xxx which puts it at 1902-1903. Just goggle his name and the list will come up.

I've managed to black out the bathroom windows so I could load film. There are no electrical outlets in the bathroom, so I'm trying to find my battery operated Paterson process timer that lets me set three times and has a beeper so it can be operated in the dark for processing film. It has a magnet on the back, so it may be stuck to the enlarger where I usually put it, but the enlarger is in storage.

Found it! I tossed it in a box with my slide projector, kind of at random. Found my white cotton gloves there, too. I think I can start processing film again.

Since we moved a few weeks ago some of the darkroom is in storage while we are getting organized, but everything is a bit dispersed at the moment.

Having seen a photo of your laboratory facility the first thing I thought of reading this was something along the lines of, "I hope you find the soap and towels soon." I am still impressed by the determination involved in making progress in that tiny workspace.

Let's just say I was inspired by some of the darkrooms I saw in tiny apartments in Eastern Europe where I was studying in Poland during the last days of Communism.

The new arrangement should be more comfortable, but I think I'll be limited to working mainly at night.

I still can't find my cordless drill. So, yesterday I stopped at Home Depot and bought a new one. This means, of course, I'll find the old one soon.

You need two anyways, maybe more. You have the drill bit in one and the screwdriver bit in the other. But then you'll need the Phillips bit too. Saves a lot of chucking having a half dozen or so drill motors around.

I have this random piece in my camera collection missing. Whenever I hit the road there is always 'something' I seem to be missing. Last time I forgot my cable release. The time before that it was a light meter.
You would think that if this really mattered, I would keep it all organized on, say, one large shelf. But ack how I can spread my things around. It drives my wife crazy, and I'm starting to become increasingly irritated with the same...

To the original OP, Joe, I wish I could state I lost a 210 RD Artar... :) You'd have to buy one first, I presume. Yeah, that's why I never lost one. Glad you found it again.
