    Schneider APO HM 150mm lens - Sleeves

    I have recently purchased a Schneider APO HM 150mm lens. It came with two accessories which I don't recognize. One is a translucent sleeve which Schneider's website shows as being mounted around the rear barrel (placing it inside the enlarger lens cone). The other accessory is an aluminum sleeve that looks a lot like some kind of lens shade but I suspect has something to do with mounting the lens in a particular enlarger. I will try to attach a picture for clarification. Can anyone tell me what the translucent plastic sleeve is for and how it is used and even what the other aluminum sleeve is.

    Thanks,

    John O

    Quick guess...

    The plastic cone is a light guide, piping light down to the illuminated aperture scale. And the aluminium "sleeve" is an extension lens board (or a sunken lens board) for some enlarger.

    The metal one looks like the lens board/cone/whatever for our Saunders LPL 4500. Tough to tell how big it is, but that is what I suspect it is.

    Paul is correct about the metal adapter. It is for Saunders/LPL enlargers. I have three of these. I am however looking for one in a 42mm mount. If that is the size of the one shown, AND you don't need it, I would be happy to take it offyour hands.

    Our local shop has a 42mm board for half off of their regular price. I think it is about $20 but I am not 100% sure. (They might even let me weasel them down a little )
    I would be happy to get it for you and ship it along to you. Actually, they might also offer shipping so you can save sales tax, I can check on that for you. Let me know.

    Paul.

    Paul, I will check tonight and let you know what diameter mount it is. If it is a 42mm we can probably work something out.

    Ole,

    You are quite right the plastic sleeve serves to guide a very soft light to the illuminated aperture dial below.

    Thanks for the information, you were right on.
