  1. Re: My Cycle Poco 5x7 is Very Excited...

    Very nice device, but aren't the light rays - partly - not hindered by the funnel?
  2. Re: Picture frame refurbishing a la cheap with polyurethane

    Before coating, to get a smooth surface, fill in the pores of the wood. I do this by applying egg white on the surface before wet sanding with (ultra)fine sandpaper - let dry and only sand one last...

    Re: Dating Derogy lens

    Although I don't have a Derogy lens in my little lens collection, I saw another variation; one that entails the address in Paris:

    "Derogy Optn
    Breveté s.g.d.g.
    quai de L'horloge 33

  6. Re: G. Gennert camera: which plateholders?

    Thanks Ron, I guess this might also be the case for the smaller sized camera's but would be great if a fellow member could confirm this from own experience.
  7. G. Gennert camera: which plateholders?

    G. Gennert camera's come mostly with a spring back. Further I see that the holders of Gennert had very specific recesses matching the back of the camera - albeit they seem very hard to find:

  12. Re: Eastman Dry Plate & Film Co camera - restoration

    It would not be complete without a lensboard that could take my lenses / shutters. Therefore I had to replace the original one since that one had a very big hole and too many screwholes for my...
  13. Re: Rayments Patent camera - who has one? - need some measures

    Thanks for passing by Walden and giving info on your PS&R lens. In the meantime I got two of these nice lenses, one for fullplate - about 250mm and one for half plate.
    Would love to see your results.
  14. Re: Replicatiing the lensboard for a Perken, Son & Rayment camera

    Hello Peter, the pieces are so small that you can only cut them with a handsaw or with a dremel ; I've cut the slots with a little saw in a dremel. Here are some pictures of the self built...
  15. Re: Replicatiing the lensboard for a Perken, Son & Rayment camera

  17. Re: Replicatiing the lensboard for a Perken, Son & Rayment camera

    Since the composite board is build from 5 pieces (a centre board, 2 breadboards and 2 splines), one has to use quite a few glue clamps. Not only to squeeze the parts together, but also - doing that -...
  18. Re: Replicatiing the lensboard for a Perken, Son & Rayment camera

    On second thought, just before gluing the board, I wasn't convinced the long grain splines made from beech would be strong enough to hold the joint - not that a lensboard has to endure much force as...

  20. Re: Replicatiing the lensboard for a Perken, Son & Rayment camera

    I first had the edges of the one piece lens board recessed so I could make it fit into the front panel of the camera and
    therefore could become a reference for the other - composite - lens board. ...

  32. Re: How different are Tessars from different companies?

    hmm....this isn't about Tessars anymore and IMHO there have not been made any Tessars with aspheric surfaces nor been made of pressed glass.
  33. Re: How different are Tessars from different companies?

    My experience is that my (older) 6.3 Tessars provide more crisp images than the later 4.5 Tessars.
