Packard Shutter on a Wollaston Meniscus
A customer wanted a way to use his Packard shutter with a Wollaston Meniscus lens.
I machined a PVC sleeve for a gentle slip fit onto the Wollaston barrel.
I then epoxy bonded it onto the back of his rather old Packard #5.
(Packards never die, they don't even fade away...)
If you'd like me to do the same, visit the Packard website...
(I suggest a #6 with a 2-1/2" opening and the "instant" pin option.)
...and have them drop ship one to me.
I'll bond a slip fit mounting ring onto your shutter for $25.
It'll fit your Wollaston Meniscus just like it was made for it.
If you're uncomfortable with drop shipping, ask me for a (marked up) quote.
