    How to focus film with Kaiser VP 6001?

    Hi,

    i've buy today Kaiser VP 6001 but i thinks it not works....
    how to focus the film to see the image clear on white support?
    i unlock bellows to rotate "wheel 01" and after rotate "wheel 02" (see image)
    but the bellows does not expand.
    my procedure for the focus is correct?

    Here is the English instructions: http://www.kaiser-fototechnik.de/pdf.../4420_2_en.pdf

    They don't seem to suggest that you involve "wheel 01" in the process.

    As Matt says wheel 01 is nothing to do with focusing, it just locks or unlocks the lens board so it can be tilted to correct verticals. Wheel 02 is the focusing wheel and if turning this does not move the bellows then it appears there is a fault somewhere. It might be worth lifting off the top half of the head to see what is happening inside. The instructions given by Matt should show you how to remove the top of the head.

    To my understanding the focusing is done via friction drive and not a geared drive (to avoid play). There might be a rubber wheel involved that lost friction.

    I have unlocked bellows which now widens, I have to reassemble it to see if "wheel 2" is able to manage through a friction his movements
