70ep....

How shall we address you?

Any interest in this developing offer? Let us know, as a definite goal is far more likely to attract nterest than an indefinite one.

Before jumping into the deep end of the pool, I hope 70ep will post pictures of the lens he has, to confirm it is the correct one, and for Franjo to assess whether the quality is sufficient for making repros.

I will commit to one Carello lens. Don mentioned a time frame for this and it makes sense.

Lens/lenseThis

I'm having guilt feelings just possessing this lens. Altruism is about to trump capitalism. I'll send photos to Franjo this evening and if they pass his muster, will send him the lens to duplicate.I have to use email for pictures. I did it once on the BB years ago, don't remember how, but know I don't want to go through it again.
Problem is, I'm leaving early in the AM for an extended road trip that will take about four weeks. Lengthens the time frame, but I see no emergency here. If there is one, maybe my son can send it earlier.
If I get it back in one piece, anyone want an original?

Congratulation and thank you very much. I'll be very happy to get a repro based on your part. The quality of my lense was too poor to assure to Franjo a perfect result. My lense is now back at home (in one piece) and will continue to do its job as it has done for almost 60 years before being replaced by one of Franjo's beauty.

Thanks again!

Thanks 70ep, mine is cracked so can't be reproduced and I would be more than happy with a reproduction. With this and an upper fuse box cover I am completed.

Cheers,

Andrew

I don't think so, but the Cox one is so similar that it is a very good solution :

You have just a small teat to cut. Result on #01234 is perfect.

Not that I know of for 2600, the situation for 102-2000 may be different.

Oh yes sorry, I was just talking about 102-2000.

Concerning the 106-2600, the fuse box must be reproduced because, 3 years ago, I bought the complete wiring harness to OKP. I receive with the harness a brand new fuse box.

Stay tuned...

Hello Dirk,

Does your post mean the lenses are on the way to Franjo, and we can anticipate production? It could be interpreted differently.

Yes. Different Lenses in different conditions are on the way to Franjo.
