Berek Condenser or Fraud?

#1 Post by mnmyco » Fri Sep 13, 2019 1:57 pm

I just bought what said it was a dual iris Berek Condenser, but the top flip out lens is not exchangeable. My understanding is that the Berek has to lenses, a 0.9 dry and a 1.25 oil lens. So, what do I have? It does has dual iris.

Never mind. Turns out it is just super dirty, to the point it looked like a curve in the metal around the base of the lens to its holder and is frozen from old grease. Not sure how to get it out actually.
