    I've consolidated what I want in LF gear, and this has to go. This is a fully working Speed Graphic with an Ektar 127mm f/4.7 lens. Bellows intact and fairly supple. Focal plane curtain working fine with most speeds sounding good to my ear. I've shot a few sheets with this camera and exposures were all good (though I didn't use the fastest speeds). Same with the leaf shutter up front.

    Kalart rangefinder appears to be pretty close in calibration to the 127, though I use GG focusing so no guarantees there. It could probably use a good cleaning, as the patch is a little dim for my eyes. They are pretty easy to calibrate with instructions online if you so desire.

    Spring back in good shape with 7 holders included. I haven't checked all the holders personally, but they came with another camera from a reputable seller, so I assume they're okay. Body's got some scuffs and the strap is pretty dry and cracked. A good user for a good price. $300 paypall'ed and shipped to CONUS.

    FP shutter has worked great for me. No sticks, jams, or jellies. :smile:

    The FP is what I used mostly, as I've been experimenting with barrel and projection lenses lately. Exposures were all good, though I never needed to use the top speeds. They sound fine to my ear, but they're untested. For comparison, the other Speed that I'm keeping is about a stop short at the high speeds, which is fine for my needs.
