    Had a good day at Wolverhampton Camera Fair and a reasonably priced larger TP Roller Blind shutter, this one fit a 3½" lens barrel or integral lens hood.

    It fits my 20" Rapid Rectilinear lens perfectly which was a nice surprise.

    With a much more common smaller shutter

    While the shutter works at all speeds 1/10 to 1/90 and T it's in need of repair and restoration. It's a front mounting version but has been used between a lens and lens board and the front has a couple of splits where it was screwed to the lens board.

    This is the lens it fits - the larger 12"x10" camera

    Now I'll be able to use the 20" RR lens on my Agfa Ansco 10x8 cameras, I'll make an adapter to take the lens board.
