    Alex,

    Congratulations! Getting big plates will be addicting I can tell you that from firsthand experience. Hope you get much joy out of it.

    Out of curiosity how did you come to the 20 x 20 size instead of 18 x 22 or even my own form of madness 20 x 24? Just wondering the thought process and I look forward to seeing your excellent work BIG!

    Monty

    Hi Monty,

    i am aware of the addicting "probem" LOL
    This camera has been offered to me 6 months ago. At that point Andy started building these camera's.
    I love to shoot square also, but with inlays i can go to any size i want.
    20 x24 would have been to big. Because of the addiction , maybe that will be the next one LOL

    First of all there is no such thing as too big! You are going to have a blast pouring that big. Your work will shine at that size as it does in all others.

    Make sure you start posting images from it soon.

    best,

    Monty
