    I'm sorry: no one spoke up for it so I donated it to Goodwill.

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”

    Just curious, does Goodwill and other thrifts take it if it know as broken or not working?

    Not usually but the manager of one of our local Goodwill shops likes to take apart and try to repair mechanical things, so we humor her and provide her with project material when we can. Advantages of small town life, I suppose.

    it is a #500 back, the precursor to the 545, and 545i backs.

    i have another one and use it for exposing #55 p/n and #59 film.
    this is MISSING the little metal wire that at the base.
    ( it is what later became the little clippy thing on the 545 back )

    it can easily be used to expose paper negatives
    or for some sort of project


    given away ... ( pending shipping payment )
    im empty, good luck

    I have some raw chemicals from the photographer's formulary. A bottle of Potassium Carbonate, Anhydrous, 1lb but I've used some of it, not too much, over half left. Also a bottle of Sodium Chloride, 100g, I've also used some, not much. Free to whoever PMs me first. I'd like $6 for shipping in the US only.

    Oh yes, they do. Not all thrift stores are that ethical. The other day I was in my local Goodwill and I saw a Minolta Maxxum that was literally covered in soap scum and that had a lens that was covered in fungus and they were still trying to sell it. It had obviously been dropped in a bathtub and wrecked, no way it worked and yet it was still on the shelf. I've also bought a couple of cameras and flashes online from Goodwill that turned out to be total duds and had a lens arrive with mega fungi. No mention of it at all in the listing.

    So yeah, they can and do sell stuff that doesn't work. I read the ads very carefully and look at all the pics. If I am in the store I test things out as much as possible but I'm always aware that I could be spending my money on junk too. If in doubt, I just don't buy, shrug.

    Nothing spectacular, just some M42 screw mount stuff:

    Zenit E - Shutter second curtain doesn't always close so spares or repair.

    Tokina 135mm f3.5 lens - Surplus to requirements as I now have a 135mm Zeiss Sonnar with M42 mount (not being offered!).

    Russian 135mm f4 lens - manually stopped down, no auto iris pin on this one.

    Just pay postage by Paypal, cheque, cash carried in the beak of a carrier pigeon, etc.

    Reply here or send P.M.
