    Thanks Mark. Hope to get out there around Christmas, but hopefully I will be done by then.

    Re: Kodak 2d in the DC area?

    Hmm.. I wonder if anyone can help me out with some quick measurements of an 8x10 Kodak 2d? I borrowed what I thought was one, and built the base this morning, but when I got back to the house, I measure the back, and it doesn't seem large enough for 8x10. It has a 5x7 back on it, and looks like it would handle whole plate. Anyway, here is a quick sketch of the measurements I need, and a picture of some of the finger joints I cut this morning making the base. If anyone needs a base for a 5x7, let me know...

    Re: Kodak 2d in the DC area?

    Thank you Jim, That is perfect. I was convinced the example I have must be smaller than 8x10, but apparently not. Everything matches up, and when I checked the hardware I have (I should have thought of that to begin with), the racks are 12 and 7/8. The only difference I can find is that the middle racks are 5 inches, rather than 4 5/16s, as yours are, and as the ones on this example are. I'll have to cut a new block, but at least I don't have to recut all the finger joints!

    Thanks again.

    Best, Tim

    Tim- I once had a borrowed 8x10 back on it. Seems like the project is moving along. Good luck the rest of the way. Eddie

    Thanks Eddie. I finally got started in earnest last weekend, but now I seem to have some parts problems. Hopefully I'll have it figured out shortly. Its actually very complex, with geared rise, swing and tilt, but I think if I take my time I can eventually get it all working (If I can get the correct parts!).

    Hi Tim

    Looks like you're good to go. I have a 5 x 7 2D. Let me know if you make it to Tucson.
