    Amund, that's exactly what I found out myself. I took a quick look at the price of a new camera, divided by 3, and found out it was worth bidding. But I didn't expect to get it!

    Seems like the other potential bidders thought the start price was too high. Besides it wasn't lisited in "LF cameras", but in "vintage -> folding"!

    Oh - and I might throw in an elderly Gandolfi Minor tripod, too (I have one already).

    And what a lovely camera it is... Now to get hold of some lens boards, so I can start putting scratches on it.

    Remember that Eddie at Gandolfi can supply these, together with all parts. He even offered to repair my Universal 12x15 inch under guarantee (if I paid shipping). Louis mis-cut the shoe at the bottom of one of the locking rods, about 100 years ago...

    Cheers,

    What - Eddie supplies scratches? :o

    I believe that the front end on this one is made for Sinar lens boards, about 14x14cm. But I just happen to have a spare front end, for "standard" 14x16.5cm Gandolfi panels - I just need three little metal pieces.

    Yeah, the catch was shipping. Camera + holders + box = 65 lb, near enough 30 kg...

    If I still lived in the UK I'd have taken him up on it. As it was I made up a replacement for the defective part on the basis of his helpful advice (3 BA threads, anyone?)

    Cheers,

    No extra charge for scratches. He can supply the three little metal pieces...

    Something strange happened in customs too - the value was clearly stated at £1350, yet I was only taxed 23% of £210. I have no idea where they got that figure from, but I'm not complaining.

    The tripod is still on the way in a separate package. He offered me to take off £50 if I didn't want the tripod, which is a very cheap Gandolfi Minor tripod. So in a week or so I'll have two...

    I watched "Raging Bull" last night on TV. The early fights against Sugar Ray had the new fangled Speed Graphics popping their bulbs.

    With your camera it sounds as if it may have been used at John L Sullivan v Gentleman Jim Corbett!

    That's when cameras were cameras of course.
