Whitey - that binocular lens is on my speed graphic with a working fp shutter - works great and has a cool look (I should post some more I did with it).
Paul - Thank you! I had totally forgotten about liquid emulsion. I know it's a pain to coat on glass, but I think it can be done.
I'll have to go looking for instructions on fixing the graflex - good for when I have some spare time (yeah, right) or if we get snowed in.
