Subject: [Leica] Waist level finder

I just completed the adaptation of a prewar waist level viewfinder from a
folding camera to an accessory fitting on the accessory shoe of my Leica

I bought the finder at a used camera junk store and do not know what format
and lens focal length it was for.   However, I sighted it in with the Leica
on a tripod and found it very like the coverage of a 50mm lens.

The next step is to try it out for practicality.
