    Very simple advice for starting making a dark slide light tight: double folded felt ? plastic foam ? Or - much more work involved - inner rail along the plate holder ?

    The old solution - which still works on my over 100 year ULF cameras - is velvet ribbons. Any colour will do and it is commercially available in different widths. These were glued into a slight indent in the wood - about 0.5mm. Foam is a short term solution and felt is a poorer, dusty material and doesn't compress much.

    Hullo Steven,
    when I mentioned felt I wanted to mean fabrics in general as velvet - but you know the velocity of answering..
