Paul, what is the pale-coloured item jammed between the front and rear standards of the bellows?

Also, if you don't need the AI metering, a PN-1 may be cheaper than a PN-11.

Chris, that's just a random piece of metal so the little micrometer bolted on the bottom (front) pushes both standards together. It's a huge warped aluminum washer I found along the railroad tracks. A pinhole lens for a stadium sized camera.
