I have not tried reloading 126 cassettes, although I would like to. These are the Pro-Tessars, so the middle and rear elements stay fixed to the camera. And you replace the front elements - like the Zeiss Ikon Contaflexes.

That is one fine looking kit, Mike. I didn't realize it took Bay 1 filters.

I was surprised too, although I shouldn't have been.

The German approach is to allow one accessory to be used by as many cameras as possible. It also makes sense from an economic standpoint.

I have some other Bay I filters for the Rolleiflex Automat, although they aren't of much use until I get some b/w film.
