I recently acquired an 11x14 Century View Camera #1 that does not have a bellows or bellows frame. I'd like to order a bellows through either Custom Bellows or Turner Bellows, but don't know the measurements I should provide since I don't have the original bellows or bellows frame. (I intend to make the bellows frame myself.)
As this is my first large format camera, I am not comfortable:
-first, assuming I've figured out how the standards, bellows frames, and bellows interact
-second, making up my own measurements
-and third, dropping $325+ on a bellows only to find out it is the wrong size
Any front and rear bellows frame measurements for my camera (and/or advice) would be greatly appreciated.
