    That's just short of a pound and a half. They sure look nice.

    I have seen those backs on the auction site a few times, always thought they looked interesting. Now having looked at your pictures I suddenly think I NEED one

    One question I have for anyone with a Graflex - how useable are the top mounted rangefinders with a 612 back in place? I find that with a PA-45 it's annoying to focus..

    I have a side mounted Kalart, but it's quite usable.

    How did you do this ? You can't advance the film by looking through the windows, so you just guess ?

    Regards,

    I took the old backing paper, and measured how many turns of the advance knob it took to advance to the next number required.
