ORIGINAL SPOTONE FROM RETOUCH METHODS CO.

Spotone 00Digging in the closet we came up with a cache of original Spotone from Retouch Methods Co., Inc.  Spotone was the industry standard for many years for B&W print spotting and retouching.  The dye penetrates into the emulsion of the print without leaving any residue.  Thus, the retouching becomes invisible.  The dyes came in two different sets, one with 3 colors and another with 6 colors.  They were also available as individual colors.  Sadly the company is no longer in business and the original Spotone is no longer available.

We have way too much of this stored. . . a little goes a long way.  We have several sets and they need to go to a new home and someone that will use them.  Note, that some of the bottles are not full.  We will describe each set individually.  Click on photos below for larger view.

WOLLENSAK RAPAX SHUTTER

WOLLENSAK RAPAX SHUTTER

WOLLENSAK RAPAX SHUTTERSpring cleaning time again. . . we are cleaning out the closet and found a few more odds-n-ends.  This is a Wollensak Rapax shutter from our collection of stuff.  Not sure of the exact size, but do know that it originally came with a 6 1/2 inch WA Dagor that we had remounted.

The shutter runs well, but hesitates, thus it does need a CLA.  Otherwise it appears to be in good working order.  Shutter and aperture blades are clean and work freely.  Lens comes with its retaining ring.

ZONE VI COMPENSATING DEVELOPING TIMER PROBE BRACKET

I had written a BLOG ENTRY last week about another project that I have been working on.  I finally got around to making an improved probe bracket for my Zone VI Compensating Developing Timer.  Seems the original prototype has been in constant service for more years than I like to remember and it was time for a few improvements in the design.  And since, as with most any machining project, it is just as easy to make several than just one, I have a few extra brackets.  I will offer these remaining brackets for sale, until they are all gone.   I would not count on ever making any more either, so if you want one, speak up now.

Here is a description of what I have.  This is a bracket used to hold the Zone VI Compensating Developing Timer metal probe to the edge of a tray.  I have used this design on every tray we have, from stainless steel to most plastic trays.  It has always fit without any trouble.  The bracket holds the probe vertically and neatly against the edge of the tray and out of the way.  Take a look at the photos.

The bracket body is machined from a solid block of Acrylic, measures 2” x 1.75” and is 0.50” thick.  The clamping screw is made of Type 316 stainless steel with a knurled Actel thumb wheel.   The binding end of the clamping screw is covered with a soft vinyl cap and an extra vinyl cap is included.

 

NOTE:  Zone VI had two different diameter probes that came with the timer.  My older main timer has the original 3/16” (0.1875”) OD probe.  The newer models came with a 1/4″ (0.250”) OD probe.  The brackets I have are drilled for the 3/16” probe, but if you need the larger diameter, I can drill the bracket if you like.  Please measure your probe to be sure of a correct fit.

ZONE VI WALNUT 4X5 W/LENS *UPDATED*

ZONE VI WALNUT 4X5

ZONE VI WALNUT 4X5
Up for sale is a nice Zone VI American Black Walnut 4×5 Field Camera with Fujinon W 210mm f5.6 lens in Copal #1 shutter.  This camera was purchased used some years back as a backup and has never been used by us.   It was cleaned, lubed, waxed and put into storage, never being put into service.  Here is the original Zone VI catalog listing for this camera;

“The Zone VI 4×5 Camera has many unique features: Its 18-inch extension and 22-inch bellows can handle, with full movements, lenses to 355mm.  It allows greater than1:1 ratio with a 210mm lens for extreme close-ups. With the 120mm lens, you can get more than a 2:1 ratio. The bellows is removable.  When the optional bag bellows is substituted, unlimited movements with lenses from 47mm to 165mm are available.  There is a front shift movement – rare on field cameras – which is convenient for precise lateral framing. There are tilts from the base as well as through the lens axis; another unusual feature.”

“As versatile in the studio as it is in the field, its range of movements exceeds the covering power of lenses designed for an 8×10! Front rise and fall, 3” travel. Front base tilt, 45° forward, 45° back. Front axis tilt, unlimited. Front swing, 17°.  Note: a front drop (we have a 1 ½” drop) achieves the same result as a rear rise. The front shift achieves the same result as a back shift to the opposite side. The camera folded, measures 3 ¼’ by 7 ¾” by 9 ½”. It weighs six pounds. The 545 and 550 Polaroid backs, the Calumet and Sinar roll film backs, and the Kodak Readyload backs are accommodated.”

The camera is in excellent condition, showing little signs of use.  The gold plated hardware shows some normal wear, but all in all is in very good condition.  All movements are tight and function smoothly.  The only noticeable finish flaws are some marking on the bottom of the camera next to the tripod socket (see photos).

The camera is fitted with an original Zone VI Fresnel which has a few very light scratches.  Also included is an additional black walnut lens board, drilled for a #0 Copal shutter.
