    Gas got the best of me today

    At a farm auction I bought a very nice Crown Graphic with a Graflex Optar f4.7 135mm, a Rolleiflex F3.5 with a Planar 3.5 that has both waistlevel and Porro? finder w/original lens cap. Not to stop there, got a Beseler 4x5 enlarger (older model), a D5XL Omega enlarger, 6 Tominon brand enlarger lens, a Leitz GmbH 50mm 4.5 enlarging lens a couple Rodenstock enlarging lens.

    Got a 127mm Rodenstock Ysaron F4.7 127mm mounted in a Polaroid Prontor shutter, 4 (that appear to be brand new) Copal shutters still in Copal plastic with silica gel, that are pretty small. They don't have flash sycn. and go up to 250 of a second...these look cheap....?

    Also got 15 Riteway holders, 13 of them are real nice. several darkroom timers, safelights, and some stuff I haven't even figured out what it is yet.

    Almost forgot the Speedotron light three setup.

    All in all a good day.

    In Missouri you have farms that grow old photo equipment?

    Should have mentioned a lot of small darkroom stuff came with the deal. Enlargers and darkroom was one lot, camera's and strobes were separate lots. Total spend was under $320.

    Found a Bausch & Lomb 158mm F6.3 Macro.....I'm assuming this is a enlarger or process lens (small lens F6.3 to F45)?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Rollei looks to date to 1961.
