    ULF restoration project help

    I've recently saved this from a skip, it was so stupidly huge and heavy it seemed too good to just lob, the purist in me just couldn't let it happen.



    The bellows seem to be intact, gears all working fine, ground glass plate is also intact.
    There's no film back - I'm guessing I'd have to build a custom one?
    And there's no lens - again at a loss as to what I would need. focal length? angle of view?

    There seems to be no information regarding its history, so if anyone is able to shed some light on where it came from that would be brilliant.

    Any help, whether from personal experience or links to useful posts, I'd be most grateful of.

    Thanks
    Liam

    Some dimensions & photos of the glass & back might help. The lens would be very dependant on the size of the plate/film - As an example, my Watson 10x12 came with a 360mm Dagor and I have an 18" (460mm) Lustra ready to use when I need something a little longer.

    Certainly looks like a fun camera to use in the studio.
