Need Information on Sabre S+35 Enlarger

I have made carriers from matte board for many old enlargers
for odd formats so that might be a place to start if you are
just itching to make a print. It's also possible that

Dumb question processing 4x5

Depends on the volume but for trials (at least) get a 8x10
paper drum, one that has dividers to separate 4x5 sheets,
load it in your changing bag (note you may need to invest in
a larger bag) and...

rangefinder adjustment..."vintage question"

The graflex.org site has instructions on how to calibrate a

What film was used for Apollo missions?

YUP as I recall ESTAR was the choice for several reasons.

Mamiya RB67 question.

A good idea to make sure all the pieces are Pro-S, the body,
the rotating adapter and the back and also ensure that none
of the links, pins, etc. are stuck or bent. May be best to
find a local...

Mamiya TLR lens hood / filter suggestions - avoiding vignetting

I've not felt the need to stack but then I shoot more MF in
the studio than outdoors. Since I am using 52mm filters it
probably would not be an issue and the original Nikon 52mm
polarizer has an...

Omega SCA-100 analyzer worth buying?

Unless it's free I'd pass, I have an SCA-400, rarely use it
except for exposure and timer. I find I print all my color
on the computer and all my black and white in the darkroom.

Can photo (time and f-stop) info be recorded automatically?

As I recall there were a few film cameras (Contax 35mm and
645?) that could record this info between frames as well.

all my lenses and use a rubber lens hood on the taking lens.

35/120 proofer

Paterson makes three proofers, 35mm and 120mm format
specific and an oversize 9x12 that's all I ever use.

For candid medium format photography you really can't beat a

viewing lens does not have a depth of field preview which
