    Re: Boston Deardorff?

    I talked to CatLAB over a year ago and they mentioned they were able to build brand new 8x10 Deardorffs but not in the 4x5 size.

  9. Re: Adhesive for gluing together PVC Garage Flooring tiles/mats?

    I felt I gave good advice since my understanding is the original poster "Greg" wanted an idea for glue that allowed adjustment for a few minutes and would then hold permanently.

    The glue I...

    Genuine Ford Fluid TA-31 RTV Silicone Sealant

    tomwilliams - sorry for my late reply. The Plaubel part numbers are bewildering to say the least. I am sure Daniel's catalog will be a huge help. I believe in general some of the 1960's cameras...
