FS: Jobo3010 Expert Drum, Graflex Optar
1. Jobo 3010 Expert Drum: Asking for $300+shipping+paypal.
I am firm on the price of the drum and I believe I have priced it very fairly and lower than what they usually go for.

Condition: it has cosmetic blemishes as would be expected from an item that has been used quite a bit.
The following minor issues came to my notice:
(a) The bottom lid that gives access to the water jacket area is a bit loose.....loose enough that it will come off easily when you try to open it, but I never found it coming off during operation on my Beseler motor base. I have never used another 3010 drum, so I don't know if that is normal.
(b) The previous owner applied epoxy to one of the junctions on the lid. For some inexplicable reason, it appears he tried to pry it open (you can see that in the pictures), but thankfully he stopped before damaging the lid.
I tested it and there are no leaks (light as well as water).
I have also uploaded a short video of the drum filled with water in operation. Pardon the video since it was shot using the iPhone and I only had 1 free hand to manipulate the drum with.
The pictures should clarify the exact cosmetic condition.
2. Graflex Optar 135mm lens with Graphex shutter, mounted on a 4x5 Speed Graphic board: $50+shipping+paypal.
Lens elements are clear barring a few cleaning marks...no fungus or haze for sure. Shutter works at all speeds, but there is no way for me to verify if the speeds are accurate. But the slow speeds are slow and the fast speeds are fast....can't hear any lag.
Comes with the lens board and the retaining ring.
3. Real World Scanning and Halftones by David Blatner and Steve Roth: an old edition from 1993, but still contains a lot of valuable information.
Book is in very good condition.
Asking: $7+shipping. I'll cover PayPal.
Please PM with any questions.
Jobo final price drop to $275+shipping+paypal.....next stop Evilbay.
Book is now sold. Rest still available.
