    Junior, Senior, Winter, Regular, Automatic, Optimo, Studio, Auto, Ultro, Betax, Gammax, Deltax, Alphax, Rapax/Graphex, are shutters made by Wollensak.
    Many most likely share the same case specifications.

    I searched and found a spare mounting ring here for a Graphex #2... then I realized... I think the 135mm Optar is in a #1 shutter.

    My mistake... my spare flange is misfiled... it's for a #3. I forget things these days.

    Unfortunately, the Wollensak range of shutters are relatively rare here; the total mish-mash of retaining ring sizes is dominated by the German makers of the era.
    Occasionally, luck strikes, and I found an old enlarging board mounting ring that's a perfect fit for the Prontor Press shutter that houses a 210 G-Claron, but no such luck with the Graphex so far.

    Yes, I too leave my shoulder separator sitting and forget where I left it.
