Talk about serendipity - I recently went back and reviewed Kerry's old View Camera article on the Arca Swiss system, and his mention of the rotating back that was an option for the older A/B/C model Arca's got me looking. I found one a few days later.:)

The back is finally here and it looks pristine - even the foam is in mint shape. Problem is, I can't rotate it. Is there some trick to this, or do I just pull out the soft-face hammer to loosen it up?
