    Seems like half the time I am missing the "on" switch for my brain.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Man, maybe it is contagious and I caught it from you? Or did you get it from me?

    Ditto...except that they are worth a lot more than two cents.

    For me, it is some lens boards, some screws, and some powdered chemicals.

    Waterhouse stops.. good idea. I think I'll keep an eye out for an iris that might fit. Think I'll put this one on the backburner and use one of the beauts I've just fixed up!

    Also, this isn't a 2c item but I wish aki-asahi.com was up and running so I could purchase some of his shutter curtain. Might have to have a look at making some..

    I'm curious exactly which screws for Graflex people are having trouble obtaining. As far as I know, none use unusual threads, and I haven't found any that I cannot replace by cutting down some existing screw.

    Everything is American thread, UNC and UNF, with a couple of minor exceptions. There are some short wood screws that are unusual, and there are several shoulder screws and the like that were either made by Graflex or made for them. I work on Series B, D, Speeds and Crowns pretty often.

    Bob,

    Many of the screws, especially the wood screws are handmade. The ones on the Pacemaker Speed Graphic are mostly standard screws. The ones on the 1919 and 1928 RB
    Graflexes are a mix of handmade and standard screws; mostly handmade on the 1919; many on the 1928. As an engineer with decades of experience, I can recognize the difference between standard screws and handmade screws. One set of screws on the Pacemaker have a standard thread, but they have a non-standard shoulder. Therefore, the only replacement requires buying a subassembly and salvaging the screws. That is neither cost efficient nor is it a positive way to preserve camera to be useable.

    Steve,

    Handmade screws can be made again. Including all their peculiar features besides a particular thread.

    QC, yes they can if you have a workplace with the right equipment. Instead, someone who had a spare sent it to me.
