Pentax auto-bellows K with slide copier Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Pentax auto-bellows K with slide copier

Asking Price
140.00 USD

Item Location
Massachusetts (United States)

Item Description
All in good condition. One thing I noticed, the pin that actuates the diaphragm lever on a lens is a little too long. With some lenses, it rubs against the guard for the diaphragm lever which means the diaphragm closes when a cable release is pressed, but it does not snap back open. I've been hesitant either to trip a mm off the pin or bend back the arm.
AND: the slide copier is designed to cover a FF negative or chrome when a FF camera body and a 50mm lens are being used. IT IS EXTREMELY DIFFICULT OR IMPOSSIBLE TO COPY ALL OF A FF NEGATIVE OR CHROME USING AN APS-C CAMERA ON THE BELLOWS. I have heard some Pentaxians say they solved the problem, but I could not using lenses of 35mm, 40mm and 50mm focal length, as well as a 50mm enlarging lens.

BTW: The ruler gives magnifications and exposure corrections for certain lenses.
