I bought these cameras a recently. The Seagull can also take 6x4.5 photos and has a coupled rangefinder,
the Baldix has an uncoupled rangefinder.
The Seagull's rangefinder is a little off, but I think usable. Does any one know how to adjust it?
I have some film and will try them out.

It seems you can remove the top plate by unscrewing the eye piece and the part above the part above the film advance lever(see the link below). After that, you might able to adjust it just like the other folders.

Thank you. I did that, but I could not find the correct screw to adjust it. Also I could not find any
explanations of how it is done. I can look up solutions for similar cameras.

The following link may help. The adjustment may be more or less the same although I am not familiar with these. Maybe someone else can help.

BTW, the Baldix came with a lens hood and a haze filter that makes it easier to attach the hood to the camera.
Will I get better photos without the filter on a cloudy day?
