If anyone recognizes it, please let me know.

Polaroid or Zeiss rangefinder removed from packfilm Polaroid, added screw , nuts & scale. Attached files http://f295.f295.org/uploads/rangfndr1_8605.jpg (http://f295.f295.org/uploads/rangfndr1_8605.jpg)

That's a nice hack, especially if you find a rangefinder equipped 'roid with, say, a trashed bellows, damaged lens, etc., or are planning a simple box pinhole buildout for the body anyway. At least as accurate as the old accessory shoe rangefinders, I'd think, and the optics are likely to be in better condition. As a bonus, it has a nice 3x4 proportioned "normal" viewfinder built in... :)
