  1. Re: Filter thread size for 8-1/4" Red Dot Artar

    Just another tidbit…

    A 42mm Series VI slip-on adapter is also a perfect fit. I use series filters with my 120 folders so I now have two options. The series filter path is marginally smaller and...
  2. Source(s) for single archival 12x20 storage box?

    I'm looking for a modest-size (depth 2" or less) box, preferably but not necessarily drop-front, to store my unmounted larger panoramic prints, which are (so far) always 20" on the long side and 12"...
  3. Re: Where to get small brass U-channel stock for contact printing frame?

    A 1/8” u-channel will fit a standard table saw kerf and protect the wood from the back springs. I have a frame made by Dan Pelland with such channels. The other frames I have lack this elegant touch.
  4. Re: Where to get small brass U-channel stock for contact printing frame?

    John makes a good point - information for others. So here's a bit more detail on the U-channel stock I was looking for to use in a contact print frame.

    The product is from K&S Precision Metals in...
  5. Where to get small brass U-channel stock for contact printing frame?

    The title pretty much says it all. McMaster carries U-channel stock but it's way too big. I'm looking for something on the order of 1/8", like what Dan Pelland used to use in his contact-printing...
  6. Re: Pentax digital spotmeter zone stick

    eBay seller "lmedinc" (that first character is a lower-case letter "L") sells two versions, one more generic and one that says "Zone VI Studios" on it. Look at item numbers 152893121509 and...

    Re: Dry mount pressed prints and wrinkles

    Living here in the northeast, the indoor humidity can be really low in winter. As others have mentioned, lower humidity when drying leads to curlier edges that occasionally wrinkle when I flatten...

    Have you tried contacting Keith? If he has a fixture for doing this you might be able to send it to him for repair.
  9. Filter thread size for 8-1/4" Red Dot Artar

    Putting this out there for posterity.

    Yesterday I discovered that my 8-1/4" Red Dot Artar (s/n 8169xx) accepts 40mm filters. I'm not sure if the threading is exactly the same as the filter's 40mm...

    Re: Carbon Transfer Video Series

    Where do you get that nifty little coil-spring whisk you use in the glop video? It differs from most I've seen in that it's not rounded at the end, it can really get into corners.

    Oh yeah, duh! Toyo… Please ignore the second part of my earlier comment. But it’s still worth asking Keith directly.

    Have you tried asking Keith Canham? He would know if anyone does. You can contact him through his web site.

    Yes, photos would be useful if I can’t have one in hand to examine. But I hold out hope for the real thing.
  16. Anyone in NE Massachusetts or southern NH USA with a Canham Wood 4x5/5x7?

    It looks like I'll be retiring for the third time (this time for good) in a few months so it's time to revive one of my dream projects - building a 7x11 wood field camera. I haven't decided yet...
  17. Re: Fujinon 180mm. f/9 - Curious about some specs.

  21. Re: Lens length preferences in 7x17 format?

    Jim, have you tried a 190 Wide-Field Ektar? 5x12 and 7x17 have almost exactly the same aspect ratio. So doing the math: (12/17)*10.75*25.4 =193mm so the Ektar should match the view of your 10.75”...

  24. Re: Mounting a threaded filter on a lens without conventional threads.

    Adam at SK Grimes can make you a slip-on threaded adapter. In that size I guess it'll be in the $100 range, plus or minus, and you might need a different one for each lens unless the outer rims of...
  25. Hinge the window on the top or the side - or does it matter?

    Any 300mm f/5.6 lens will be in a Copal 3 or comparable shutter so it will be big and heavy.

    Richard, in the McMaster-Carr catalog it says only that some of the footswitches have "quick connects" but it doesn't say what kind. Do you recall if the parts Zone VI used specifically said RJ-11?
