Weight of 250mm (10") WF Ektar?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I've also posted this in rec.photo.equipment.large-format, but thought I'd ask here too.

I sold my 250mm WF Ektar a while back, but now need a fairly accurate weight figure for this lens for an article I am writing.

So, if anyone out there has one of these classic lenses and a reasonably accurate scale (a postal scale accurate to the nearest 1/4 oz. or 5 g would be sufficient), I'd appreciate it if you could weigh the lens and either post the result here or email it to me at largeformat@thalmann.com

I'm not looking for estimates or even specs, but the actual weight of a 250mm WF Ektar in a No. 5 Ilex shutter (just the weight of the lens, shutter and mounting flange - no lensboard or caps).

Thanks in advance for any help.
