Customizing my Annie Speed - Questions
Hello all, and meet Annie;
I got this as a restoration project from a fellow APUG member, and stripped the leather that was in poor condition, and cleaned and refinished the wood underneath, etc. Looking at my Pacemaker, I noticed that i could take the lower part of the front standard, and transfer it to the Anny and give it front tilts, however the rangefinder lip on the bed interfered with the standard somewhat. I can take the prong off, easy. But the rails on the Anny are a little rough anyway.
Since I've modified it, this is what i use for backpacking, etc, as i don't care if it gets a little dinged. It's kind of my test platform. I've already put a grafloc on it, and done the steampunking.
What my question is... Are Pacemaker rails compatible with an Anniversary Speed Graphic? And how to I mate the bellows to a Pacemaker front standard? I could leave the front standard bakelite square attached, and just switch the outer part, but I'm thinking that it might be nice to standardize lensboards.
Also... Could I even fit a front standard from a Super on here? It's what i've been using for backpacking/field camera so the extra movements would definitively be a plus.
