Offering a focussing tube made by Schacht Ulm for Exakta-Camera-Company-Bronxville-N.Y.
Both sides with Exakta mount. Originally it was made for a sunk-mount Travenar/Exaktar lens.
Cosmetics are good, but focussing is uneven and stiff, needs a relubing.
After that servicing, it will be a very versatile focussing unit for your DIY-project!
I do own and use a similar one for using lenses without an own focussing mount.








I ask 37€ including world-wide shipping

Approximately how much extension does the tube give fully retracted, and fully extended?

It's a interesting piece, I have to sitting in my cupboard collecting dust Wink
Exakta mount is not really a modern modular mounting system, I'd rather
use M42, which is much more versatile for my needs that is.

Yes, maybe 42 is more versatile. But I am someone who has a lot of Exakta stuff. like adapters, rings.... for me it is versatile.
