The key and easy to see distinction is on top of t...

Re: The new Mitchell Catalogue May 1, 1922

Looks like pebble pulled another one out of his hat! Absolutely never heard of this one either. I can read what it is for but I can't say I understand it works!

Thanks again pebbles and keep them coming!!!

Wow, never heard nor seen a speed meter before! What a cool piece! I bet most of those got thrown out when sound came and they exclusively used motors! That's great info and history! Keep'em coming!

Re: The new Mitchell Catalogue May 1, 1922

Thanks for the ads on the matte wheel! Fortunately my Standard still has the matte wheel as they are often removed from the cameras. My camera also has an adjustable length auto disolve, but this was disabled. I am trying to restore that function. I have also seen other parts removed, like on a BNC ...
