    The Toyo revolving 4x5 back has a single lever on one side to ease opening the back, instead of a full bail, whereas the "reversing" back lacks the lever. The 8x10 Toyo back has levers on both sides. I can send you photos if you'd like, Doug.

    Then, there are the backs that are held on with bailing wire. But, within this context, that's probably an anti-bail.

    Yes, that would be very nice. My e-mail is:

    Indeed!

    Thanks so much for the info.

    Best regards,

    Doug

    In any case, I'll take it.

    I need to tell you a story about my pocket protector. When I had my first date with my bride, Carla, (we had both been widowed, and had met at church), I decided I had better not wear my famous pocket protector (which held ball-point pens of three different colors - two blacks, in case somebody asked to borrow one - an 0.5 mm drafting pencil, a small felt-tipped pen, and a small flashlight), as it might look "too geeky"', so I just put one pen in my shirt pocket.

    Partway through dinner, Carla said, "Where is your pack of pens?" I told her why it wasn't there. She said, "Well, without it, it's just not you!"

    A week later, we were engaged!



    Thanks a lot. Hope you find some of it useful.

    Best regards,

    Doug

    Well, if I didn't know your nom de guerre, I would find that a bit pejorative, but since I do, I'm proud to receive that rating. Thanks.

    Best regards,
