    Well it doesn't seem a proper lens board, and it doesn't look like a lens to me, and the scale actually reminds me of the dial setting for old radio's.

    The lens looks like a Componon or Componon S.
    The scale looks like a process camera aperature/magnification/time chart. The blade is attached to the lens aperature scale. Quite a few camera operators would use one exposure time and make adjustments in aperature related to magnification.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    I cannot say I have ever used a G.A. camera that old, but it does look just like an "old" version of all the G.A. cameras I have used. The magnification scale is similar even today. Bellows extension factor is a constant issue with G.A. cameras, so the compensation scale is hooked up directly to the aperture. The camera is supposed to go on rails. The lens looks like very old enlarger lenses, which are more similar to G.A. lenses than camera lenses, so it seems appropriate for the camera.

    aperature [...] aperature [...] aperature
    The word "aperture" is not related to the words "apparatus" or opera.

    The lens is probably in a barrel instead of a shutter. At least the one in my garage is like that. No shutter. And a PITA to remount.

    The lens itself is probably superb. But getting it mounted isn't trivial. It isn't impossible either. But I just never got to it.

    From what I understand it's one of the flat field lenses optimized for close work, not infinity.

    Ah, the joys of yet one more project that I may never find time to get around to doing.

    Why wasn't I born rich instead of stupid?

    Really appreciate all the information. I love APUG. Gotta admit, not sure how to get it from Texas to Washington state, but it'd sure look awsome in my (soon to be finished) mancave
