1917 Kodak No. 2 Folding Cartridge Premo Aperture Question - Photography

I have recently come across a Kodak No 2 Folding Cartridge Premo camera from 1917. It takes 120 film and shoots a 6x9 cm negative. It has shutter speeds of 1/25, 1/50, B and T. The aperture settings are 1, 2, 3 and 4 with 1 being the largest opening. I am hoping that there is someone out there who knows the relative aperture of this camera. I would like to be able to get out of having to run tests in order to reliably shoot with this camera. I appreciate any help you guys can offer, I have scoured ...

    Default 1917 Kodak No. 2 Folding Cartridge Premo Aperture Question

    I have recently come across a Kodak No 2 Folding Cartridge Premo camera
    from 1917. It takes 120 film and shoots a 6x9 cm negative. It has
    shutter speeds of 1/25, 1/50, B and T. The aperture settings are 1, 2, 3
    and 4 with 1 being the largest opening. I am hoping that there is
    someone out there who knows the relative aperture of this camera. I
    would like to be able to get out of having to run tests in order to
    reliably shoot with this camera. I appreciate any help you guys can
    offer, I have scoured the net for this info and you guys are my last
    hope before testing.

    Thanks.

    Give me a break! Figuring out how an old camera works
    is part of the fun.

    You'll have to test the shutter speed anyway. Do you
    really think it's still going to be accurate after
    all these years?

    im not 100% sure but i think its f/11, f/16, f/22, f/32

    i think this is what it is on my kodak VPK and the kodak rotary shutter on
    my VPK is very accurate at over 80 years old though it only has 1 speed,
    1/50th
