    Kodak 2d in the DC area?

    I bought a set of 8x10 2D parts from a member here, and I wonder if anyone in the area has an 8x10 2D I can arrange to photograph and measure sometime? I'll do a sketch and make that available in case anyone else wants it.

    Mods, if this should be in DIY, please move. I was unsure.

    Best, Tim

    Not sure I understand . . . .

    Are you missing parts? Do you intend to make parts to complete the camera?

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I sold Tim all of the metal parts from a 2D that I had. I believe he needs to see an actual camera so he can build his own.

    Thanks Cary. I will use photos if I need to, but it would be easiest for me to have a camera in hand to examine and measure. That would help me get exact widths and thicknesses, and I could examine the joints and the tripod mounting arrangement, etc.

    Tim,
    I have one you're welcome to borrow. It needs a new bellows, and only has a 5x7 back but, if it meets your needs, you're welcome to it.
    I'm in Alexandria.

    Thanks Eddie. Is it a 5x7 camera, or an 8x10 with a 5x7 reducing back? It might not matter, as it is possible the bed and front are the same on both (as they are on the B&Js). I'll send you a PM, and maybe I can stop by on a weekend sometime and measure it up.

    It's an 8x10. I'd be willing to let you hang onto it for awhile, as I'm not sure when ( or if) I'll get around to rehabbing it. I think it would be easier for you to work on yours from another camera, rather than measurements and photos.

    Oh, okay. That would be great. Make it even easier. Lets get together this weekend, if you have the time. I sent you a PM. Just let me know a time and address.

    I have a 5x7 and an 8x10 2D if you'll be in Tucson any time soon...
