Does anyone have a list of all the different connecting cords made by Graflex and Singer/Graflex? I have several cords that I am not sure what they connect to.l Cat. NO. 2808,2517 and 2260 + Singer Graflex Cat. # 2353 and 2251.
I have several Graflex booklets but none of them have complete list of cords, plus I have searched the web looking for a complete list with images. Any ideas? I would really like some help.
thank you

I can help with all but one - can't immediately find the 2808. You didn't describe it, but I suspect it is the 36" Expando-O-Cord for a bayonet shutter cord used with Kodak shutters - for Graphic View II.

2517 - 20" shutter cord for older Graflex battery cases w/ASA bi-post connection
2260 - Stroboflash adapter cord
2353 - Auto supply strob charger cord
2251 - Strop 350 & 500 7' coiled power cord (replacement)

That's right, Rich. I just found a closeout sheet for Olden Camera when they bought out the remaining Graflex equip. dated 8/18/75. At that time, you could get 3 of these cords for $6.50.

How I wish I had the brains to buy "closeout" Graflex equipment back in the 70's....

Am living in the U/K - just bought a Graflex kit after stupidly selling my father's Graflex many years ago. Maplin Electronics(U.K.)sell a connector that fits the 2 flash prongs on Graflex lenses allowing electronic flash to be used. (Item-Battery connector-JG05-Race Pk-Lead:Female)-cost around $4. The connector has two 6"trailing leads that can be soldered to a spare flash connector lead.
Hope this is useful to all Graflex-oholics.

That's a good price for you guys. Over here I've been buying the Graphex dual prong shutter synch cords from http://www.paramountcords.com at +/-$20 a pop.
They *are* well made, though, and suspect with int'l postage, customs duties, etc., your brand would end up costing as much or more over here, with hassle.
