    Source for custom-made ground glass?

    Hi All,

    I managed to break the ground glass on my 14x14 camera. Can anyone recommend a supplier for a custom-made replacement?

    Thanks

    Rob

    I just built a 5 x 12 camera and I sourced my ground glass on ebay. I found a vendor who was making 5x7 and asked if they could do 5 x 12 - no problem.

    I'm very pleased with the 8"x10" gg I recently got from Steve Hopf

    Make your own, I just one for my 16x20 and it was remarkably easy and the screen is bright. Total cost was maybe 20$ for glass and grinding compound. And an hour or so of elbow grease.

    I followed Ian's directions https://www.lomography.com/magazine/...n-focus-screen
