    Nope! Nor does any other business.
    I do suspect that some of their as-is pieces may be items that were sold and found not to be cost effective to repair.

    I'm always late to the party (said that before), but to those upthread who were making fun of my Graflex recommendation: the only SLR I currently use is a 6x9 cm Graflex RB series B, which takes astonishingly sharp pictures. With an RH-12 or "22" rollholder, you've got a 6x6 cm slr, for about 150 bucks. Maybe all of you snarkmeisters should do a little research before you make a kindergarten mistake like assuming all Graflex slr's are 4x5 or 5x7.

    I am not trying to tell the OP how to live his life. He asked for ideas a 6x6 slr, which is what a smaller Graflex with 6x6 roll back is. The OP did not ask for the "volumetrically smallest possible 6x6 slr". You appear to be the one telling the OP how to live their life with your assumption that there is no way they could possibly be interested in this particular 6x6 SLR setup. Your further contention that a 6x9 camera is "large format" seems strange. Have you ever used a smaller RB? Mine is easier to handle than a Pentax 6x7, lighter than many Hasselblad rigs (admittedly, without interchangeable lenses), and a hell of a lot smaller than a 4x5 Graflex (less than half the size by volume).

    I think using an LF camera for 6x6 would be a less than satisfactory option.

    1) Much larger than a proper 6x6 SLR.
    2) Limited selection of lenses based on minimum bellows extension.
    3) More involved shooting sequence due to manual lens cock/release and aperture control.

    It would have the advantage of traditional LF movements, provided the lens IC could support same.
