Good evening
I am making a replica Graflex Ringside camera and I only have two photos, I have trouble seeing mounting the front lens plate in detail. One of you would have it pictures of this device? thank for your help.

If memory serves correct it's mentioned in the 1947 ed. of the Speed Graphic book,
I think the lens was on a focusing mount.
What are you using for the focusing helical ?

Many thanks, but it is one of the two photo I have with the photo in the" Morgan and Lester book"..
Note thats they estimate the camera between 38 and 40 , so the plate for the aperture is before 1938 ( no button for lock the fire button)
Perhaps the camera date is 1938 in the first 6 month ( I read somewhere they change the panel control and the viewfinder in July 1938) Information need to be confirmed..

So many many thanks for your research, it is very good to have some help in this project.

I just finish the body, just need to adjust the Infinity position and the leather will be applied tomorrow.

best regards
laurent
