    Good, having both bellows and bag bellows is awesome. How long are the normal bellows?

    Measure the hole in the lens boards then look at this table to determine what shutter will fit.

    You can get lensboards pretty cheaply on eBay ($5-$30) in whatever size you need.

    The recessed board is 1 3/8 inches and the flat board is 1 5/8 inches.. I stretched the bellows as far as i could and they measure 15.5 inches.. I guess that means i have a copal 0 and a copal 1?

    It looks like one of the lens boards is a recessed board, use for wide angle lenses, 90mm and wider. A few more film holders, lenses and film and you are ready to go.

    Oh yeah, don't forget a good stable tripod. These things are a bear to hand hold.

    Make sure you have a good stout tripod to support the beast. Make sure the tripod can support at least double the weight of your camera with lens.

    There is no Copal #2 shutter, only #0, #1, and #3.
    (There is a #00, smaller than the #0, very seldom encountered.)

    Proper hole diameters for these are:
    #0 - 34.8mm
    #1 - 41.8mm
    #3 - 64.2mm

    Note that the holes are larger than the major diameter of the shutter mounting thread, and properly so.
    The retaining ring has a lip at the rear (facing the lensboard). The mounting hole must be larger enough to clear that lip.

    You may encounter shutters mounted incorrectly, in holes sized for the thread, with the ring reversed (lip on the outside).

    Note that many other hole diameters were in common usage for other shutters. Sizes were not at all standardized.

    As of right now i only have an old Soligor Husky tripod, it seems to hold the camera rock solid.
