    Have a look:

    Wondering if you might be interested in something in the 150mm/165mm/180mm range? I may have some Fujinon 135mm cells that would fit your current or future shutters. I also have some 127mm/135mm lenses and cells that are f/4.7 Tessar designs. They barely cover 4x5 at infinity so no room for movements unless you focus closer. If interested in any, shoot me a pm and let me know what you might be looking for.

    It looks like it's a very early 90mm f8 SA in a Compur #00 and they are small & fiddly, no spare parts available, B but not T so not the fgasteset to set up and use. They were OK for Press cameras like this, the shutter was really made for MF roll film cameras but Schneider used it for some Super Angulons before switching to the better #0 Compurs.

    The options are replace with a #00 Prontor if it fails and can't be repaired or there are adapters for #0 shutters to take #00 fit cells but you'd need to measure the spacings first and correct if necessary. The lens is about 55 years old

    Wow, interesting info then. So if that's the case, I guess I look into getting a modern somewhat wide angle and leave the 90mm for the graflex, which I have a 6x17 back attached to anyhow. Dang, guess I'm shopping for more boards and lenses than I had originally hoped.

    I'll take a closer look at the shutter tonight when I get outta my jail--err, office! Here's a pic of the mod.

    That's a hell of a kluge. But at least it works. In the long run it will probably be cheaper and easier to find another f8 SA or one of the f6.8 Angulons that's in a better shutter.
    Like this one:

    I have no affiliation with the seller - just something that turned up on a quick ebay search.

    That's definitely a #00 shutter, the 90mm f5.6 SA I have is in a #0 Compur and there's a dust cover/space between the lens barrel and the rimset speed control ring. The 5.6 version has larger elemnts as well.

    It was used for backpacking and kept getting broken off, so ya, there ya go. What do you expect from high schoolers with a big camera and no idea how to use it?!

    I think I want a 110mm instead of a 90mm. 90mm is too wide for my flavor.

    I have a 110 you'd love (but it's not for sale!). Look around for a Goerz American Optical (usually abbreviated to Am.Opt.) Wide-angle Dagor 4 3/8" f8. Light, compact, almost covers whole plate wide open. Mine is in an older Rapax shutter, but they're actually pretty decent if you exercise them regularly. You could probably get one put in a Copal 0 if you must have a modern shutter with it. It is small enough I used to be able to reverse the lensboard and leave it mounted inside my Shen Hao 4x5 when closed up, with no harm to the camera or lens.

    Thanks for those links. Pricey little buggers. Fujinon lenses have my interest

    I love my Fujinons. 90, 135, 180 and a 250. Got them all from forum members at LFF. Don't think I paid more than $275 for any, some much cheaper.

    Well, I am just gonna get a new board for the Schneider 210 I have, but the 90mm Linhof is staying with the Graflex and the 6x17 back. Looking for a Fujinon or Nikkor 125-135mm 5.6 in a Copal 0. I've always liked any Fuji and Nikkor stuff I've used.
