  1. The center contact is 4.8v and the side contact is 2.4v, correct. I haven't used this camera in about a year since I have upgraded, however I did manage to obtain the dummy adapter for it, and there are two hot wires going to the center contact, each providing 2.4v, one hot wire going to the side contact which is 2.4v, and one ground wire which might go to the side of the battery compartment, not 100% sure. If you're building a pack from scratch, the later version of the 2008 or 4008 might be a bit easier because they have 3 larger contacts in the center that you can attach alligator clips to, one is 4.8, one is 2.4 and one is ground. A voltmeter is incredibly useful in these situations to double-check which is which. There is also this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Beaulieu-4008-Replacement-Battery-Pack-Kit-with-Charger-Model-Mk-II-/263159382092?_trksid=p2385738.m2548.l4275
  2. Hello, when I find myself having to repeat myself over and over because people do not read my post I get tired of being civil. Once again I am having to repeat myself because my initial post was NOT vague. If you thought it was vague, then you don't know what Custom Upholstery Products is, yet you feel the need to respond to me despite the fact that you can offer me no help. Wow...just wow. So let me get this straight, I post a question asking for help, you're first response is "I don't know", then you assume I'm stupid and link me to a forum I've already read, and now you're calling me stupid and lazy because you managed to google "Custom Upholstery Products", and me taking up space on this forum, posting my original question just bothers you so much. YOU are the one who insists on responding to me when you don't know anything yourself, go pick a fight with someone else. Next time you post on one of my threads I'm reporting you. Can an admin please delete this thread?
  3. Lol good reading comprehension skills, you didn't actually read my posts. I'll iterate again, If you didn't know what I was talking about from the title, I don't need your response. You clearly have not done business with them or don't know of them. Why would you link me a forum thread after I typed "I'm not asking for someone to do research for me, they've been mentioned a lot on this forum in the past"? Are you even aware that that thread is from six years ago? Again, my original post: "can't find anything from them in the last few years." I'm really not responsible for your stupidity, so **(obscenity removed)** off and learn to read.
  4. I'm not asking for someone to do research for me, they've been mentioned a lot on this forum in the past and I was hoping to get a response from someone who has done business with them or knows of them already. Seriously...why even respond if you don't know what I'm asking about?
  5. Does this place still exist? Their website is down and can't find anything from them in the last few years.
  6. Hi, if you're interested please take a look at the actual listing, because I post both in the listing and on my post here that I removed the loop formers, there's also a picture on the listing of the inside of the camera w/o loop formers. I have no idea what year it was made in, it is one with Russian lettering on it as opposed to the ones with English so chances are it is an earlier model that dates from the 70s or mid 80s. Shipping to Austria would be $100. There are a hundred other K-3s on Ebay that are shipped from Europe, chances are you could find one in which the shipping to you would be a lot less.
  7. Hello, I am selling one of my K-3's that I have used throughout school because I no longer need it. I installed a re-centered lens mount and wider gate so it can be used to shoot Super16, removed the loop formers, and it was also serviced and had the exterior redone last year by a camera tech. Here is the listing on Ebay, starting price is $200. http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/282281068444?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT I'd be happy to provide video of film running through the camera or some stills from a couple of the projects I used it on if you'd like.
  8. Hey, thanks for the reply. You're right, I kind of figured that would be best so I am bringing in the lens to the service techs tomorrow. I did also notice the aperture ring has a too much play in it so I will ask them about that also.
  9. Thanks, I didn't know there was a tool specifically for that. There really is a tool for everything. I guess that's why I like to post questions on this forum.
  10. The slot is definitely the same one that fits onto the push-tab on the camera. I tried a 1.5mm screwdriver and a thin strip of metal but I couldn't get the what I thought was the locking pin to push down. I think this is something the guys at DuAll will be able to do, I just hope they aren't going to charge me an arm and a leg.
  11. Hello, thanks for replying. I think you are right, that it is for a prado microscope as opposed to a projector, however it is set in a black ring that attaches to the adapter and there aren't any release pins.
  12. Hello, I have a Leica m-mount lens that I bought as part of some kind of attachment for a projector or enlarger. I don't know how to remove the lens from the adapter it's attached to, there doesn't seem to be a release button. Here are some pictures, can anyone help me?
  13. Hello, I have an M mount 10mm Cinegon lens I bought off Ebay that's been attached to some kind of leica adapter for a projector (?). I don't know how to remove it, there doesn't seem to be a release button. Anyone got any ideas?
  14. Hello, I am investing in some camera equipment that I will be trying to rent out in addition to using myself. I was planning on doing all the advertising myself, but has anyone ever heard of having a rental house rent out your equipment for you and let them take a percentage? I'm talking about guys that I trust and that I've worked with before. They don't have what I'm offering, but I don't have the contacts or the publicity that they have.
