Helical Mount

Looking for a Helical Mount for a Schneider super-angulon 5.6/47 XL , 5.6/65. May be interested in buying the lens and Helical mount .
Mike, there is a Schneider helical focus mount advertised by member 'anyone'. It has the distance numerals for the Apo-Digitar 80mm lens printed on it, but the focuser is otherwise the same.

Otherwise, my recommendation is buy a Cambo Wide 470 or Cambo Wide 650 camera, which incorporate both the lens and the Schneider helical focus mount. The 470 model has the Super-Angulon 47mm or the later 47XL lens (depending on the build date) and the 650 model has the Super-Angulon 65mm lens. The 650 was replaced by the 580, with the Super-Angulon 58XL lens. Nevertheless, the 65mm lens is excellent.
