    I was wrong. I checked a little closer and the seller will accept returns within 14 days. Sent him an e-mail and he said to send it back. It will be on it's way back to NY next week. I also stated that I should've done a little more homework before making my offer. Not bashing anyone here, just trying to find a way to repair the camera I bought foolishly.

    If I didn't already have one, I'd jump on this one myself. I looked at the listing and it even includes the hard to find, proper Graflex compendium lenshood. This is a great starter setup.

    I've got a 4X5 Orbit view in excellent shape, bellows, ground glass, one lens board, focusing cloth, tripod block and 22" rail. It also has a revolving back(360degrees) not a rotating back(90degrees)

    I've had it on the site a couple of times at $100.00 including shipping. that's without the case. case is plywood with a vinyl covering, reinforced corners and only weighs about 600lbs. The cost of shipping the case I think would be a slug of $$$$ but is good for storage.

    You should be able to pick up a lens for $100 or less but any of them may be in the same shape as the Paragon. The sticking B&T and no slow speeds is indicative of old lubricants and a CLA will cure it. As Shutterfinger mentioned, about $70 to fix it.
    Someplace like KEH or Midwest sell with a warrantee. There are also deals to be found here and on the large format forum.
    John, I sent you a PM.

    I talked to the owner and he really wants to sell the whole outfit as a set. He has a Schneider 150/265 convertible lens and some other accessories to go along with it for a total of $350.00. It's still a pretty good deal I think, but he's leaving for a three week trip and would prefer to do a local sale. If I haven't found anything when he get's back, then he will be willing to ship it to me in Ohio.
