  1. Re: Trying to Source Gear Rack for 8x10 Kodak 2D

    Thanks, Ari. And thanks for the superb FLM tripod the camera is resting on!

    Bryan, can the front extension (rail? whatever they call the part the front standard bolts into) be reversed? If so, it looks like you might be able to get the far socket much closer to the rear...
  3. Re: Trying to Source Gear Rack for 8x10 Kodak 2D

    Ari, I paid a professional woodworker to do this once. Stripped the racks from an old orphan rail to make a replacement rear rail for an 11x14 Empire State.

    Given that you donít have a parts rail...

    The additional backs fit inside padded envelopes and a slim cheap nylon briefcase.

    An additional accessory is what I am calling a mid-rail. The front standard screws into it. It has beveled...

    Re: 7x11 Camera Build

    Here's an update on this build.

    The camera has been a joy to use this year, with its combination of light weight, movements, and how well everything locks down.

    I finally tested the bellows...

    Re: spring steel for camera back?

    Okay, as of today, I can attest to the magical transformation (i.e., hardening effect) of hammering brass strips. I am fabricating an 8x10 reducing back for my 7x11 camera and thus needed a slim,...

    Steve, not sure we are on the same page. Dan (I think) and I are referring to the chrome ring on the inside of the shutter face where the front lens cell is screwed in, not the outer chrome ring...

    Hi Dan, I'm so glad you responded. You probably know as much or more about lenses than anyone around.
