    hmmm. I have a 4x5 Gravity works washer and it works correctly in that the tube fills, then drains the chamber. Don't use it much as I thought it used too much water. As mentioned, check everything...

    Re: Folding problem with Intrepid 4x5 MK4 camera

    Changing the wood screws should help, look for flat heads. Surprised Intrepid didn't see this problem when they were testing the camera. If you don't care about the looks, I'd not worry about it. If...

    Aside from KHB, does anyone know where to get the glass inserts for the Durst Tauneg carrier (4x5) ? Guessing bottom is regular glass, and top is AN.

    I got my spares from the big auction site. Very good price, so I got around 5. Don't imagine I will burn through all of them. Can check but think they were either Phillips, GE, or Osram

    glad you seem to have found the problem with the leaks. wonder of spring clamps can be used to tighten up the mating, until you come to a more long term solution (ideally a replacement back)
