    I would suggest using a little stronger adjustable spanner and using some leverage if you need to.

  3. Re: Help with Speed Graphic ground glass/fresnel

    Yes, I have a stock Tachihara combo screen. Their instructions do not make sense to me.

    I would go back to your original fresnel screen and ground glass parts, or source new old stock replacements.
  4. Re: Help with Speed Graphic ground glass/fresnel

    What you call the matte surface should face towards the lens, thus the thickness is not of consequence.

    Re: Attaching bellows to frame

    I think E6000 glue would work and the front frame being screwed to the front standard would hold well. The rear frame often has tacks or screws inside to help hold the bellows on.

    One idea is to use thin black photo tape, which sort of looks like black masking tape.
