OK, call this a wild hare... but I figure I'd put out my feelers here and see if anybody takes the bait.
I've got a B&J Press 4x5" that I use as a field camera, but I'd love to have the rangefinder fixed up and repaired so I can do handheld stuff as well. Given many APUGger's propensity for DIY repairs and general fiddling, I was wondering if someone here would want to tackle the repair.
I've opened it up and I'm fairly sure it will need a new beamsplitter, and also there is one lenslet in there that is loose. Not sure where it goes(?)...
Other than that it appears to be in good condition and complete. So it'd really be a matter of cleaning up the lenses, putting in a new beamsplitter and finding where this little lens fits and cementing it back in place.
Alternatively, if someone has some of the beamsplitter material, maybe you could just sell me enough to do it myself.
Whaddya think?, interested? Put in yer bids and let's see if we can work something out. Sending just the rangefinder would be preferable, and then I could probably figure out the lens coupling/calibration myself.
