View Full Version : Rngefinder cams for Horseman 985
Hello, I have just bought a horseman 985, and in separate actions Topcor lenses on 65, 90 and 150 focal lengths. But unfortunately all of them without the rangefinder cams. I would like to draw and machine new cams for this lenses, then I would like to ask you guys, if kindly would can you get for me some good closeup pictures of the original cams for this lenses, as parallels as possible, then I would can make precise drawings of the cams and machine them :o
Hi Jolillo, I can supply you with a close copy on paper of the cam for a Topcor 105/3.5, that came with my Horseman 970 a few days ago. PM me if interested.
I'd like to have drawings of the cams of the 65 and 150 lenses as well, if you will get any!
Hi Johan, till now no luck here. Yours has been the one and only answer. I hoped for more help here :(
These cams can be found but you have to be patient. Possible sources: e-bay, KEH, photo.net classifieds or call Midwest Camera.
I have a 105 Super and a 150 at present. Can send you a tracing in a week or so - right now I am out of town and away from my camera.
I have seen all of the ones you are looking for on e-bay in the past few months.
Would be great to have this drawings from you. You prefer to send it to me in paper and post mail or scan it and send by email? I think we would can build a good database with all the drawings. When I will get yours I will post to Johan a copy of the 150 cam, as he asked me to do it in case I would get one.
I have been searching on all those places you suggested me for the last 3 weeks but with no luck. I have found cams for Linhof Technika, but they are totally different. Again thank you very much and I will send you a PM with my postal address and my email :)
Good thing is, with a 150 cam I can mount any 150 lens and still have RF coupled. No need for a Topcor lens. My future 65 lens will probably be a 65 lens from a Mamiya TLR, much easier to find and fixed onto another lens board in the blink of an eye
YAY! Tonite was a good night, I won the auction for a Topcor 150 from Japan on eBay, as well as a Kodak Medalist II, from France!
That 150 cam copy will come in quite handy now! Looking forward to exchanging exact copies on paper of cams, might do a page on the Horsemans on my website, and include copies of the cams there, so people can print them at home and create their own!
