hello

Two quick questions from a beginner today:

1) after mounting the APO Symmar in the Pacemaker Speed Graphic, will the SG cover close--or, does the lens front prohibit complete closure of the cover?

2) we have the 135mm 4.7 Graflex Optar in a Graphex #2--the back mounting ring is off, but is it possible to unscrew the front element from the shutter, or is some disassembly of the shutter required (we'd rather not force it). Does the rear element unscrew--or, is 'built in' (lack of better term) to the shutter somehow?

thank you

I have the same lens in Graphex shutter. Both front and rear elements unscrew CCW. You may need to use a rubber pad (jar opener) to get a grip on the metal lens mount; I wouldn't use any tools, other than my hand, or any penetrating solvent on the threads, for fear of damaging the lens coating or delaminating the lens elements. Hopefully a determined effort will succeed!

Later---forgot to mention, in answer to your question, that no disassembly of the shutter is required to remove the lens elements: they simply unscrew.
