    Welcome to APUG!

    In the meantime I would like to recommend so websites:
    www.graflex.org -- the best place to start for posted information, articles and manual, and advice on Speed and Crown Graphics. It is not a real active website, but the moderators and experts get emails for each posting so that in a few hours or day you will start getting answers. No advertising or sales of equipment allowed.
    http://www.largeformatphotography.info -- large format in general, some graphic and graflex heavy users.
    http://www.southbristolviews.com/ one more information source
    You can also get manuals at http://www.butkus.org/chinon/ If you find the downloads useful please send in $3 each to keep this free work going.

    I recommend the book GRAPHIC GRAFLEX Photography Morgan & Morgan, INC., Publishers, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY by Willard D. Morgan and Henry M. Lester. Get the 9th edition or later.

    Feel free to ask questions, none of us was born with this knowledge.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Thanks for the links, I have checked a couple of them and will look into the others as well. Hoping to find someone I can work with in person as well, I feel I learn better that way and it's nice working with people of similar interests.

    I had mine get a clean, lube and adjust by these folks in January and was pleased with the work and their pricing. Martin Battilana, 2735 Old Dixie Hwy, Springfield, Ga 31329. Telephone 251-564-4079 savannahbooks@yahoo.com
