I'm going to post a few pictures of my old, old vintage, most liked stuff.
Starting with a camera:
Folmer & Schwing Century Universal 8x10"

Beautiful birthday gift from my late partner.
Came already restored from the USA

If you own an 8x10" camera (in my case, a number of them..), you got to have lenses.
Let's start with wide-angles. Ouch... modern wides cost a lot, and they don't even look so good on a vintage folding camera
Went scouting for wides, and found four of them, one by one, for an attractive price. A pity they were all in barrel mount.
Unfortunately at the time they didn't have just three or four leaf shutter sizes. There were many! Sp finding them was not so simple.
It took long, but finally, after months, I could score four leaf shutter that were fully working (not to be taken for granted, many are gummed/broken) and were a perfect fit for the lens cells:
two different Alphax, one Betax, and a No.3 Compur Electronic.

Here are the results of my efforts, all cells fitting the right shutter, front and back.
I should have done the new aperture range with a label printer, but it never happened.

Surprisingly all these very old wides still perform well enough for 8x10"/18x24cm negatives, you just got to stop down a lot. The focal (and possibly the optical design) helps to contain diffraction-induced sharpness reduction.
BTW, extreme sharpness isn't what you necessarily need if you contact-print 8x10" B&W negatives (or X-ray sheets).
Notice the max aperture of the Gundlach 8x10 Radar Ext. W.A. Anastigmat: f/16

My small collection of Takumars less the 200mm f/4 which I keep at my in-laws place.
