    Re: Advice request: cutter

    Not viewing their offerings as idle rhetoric, I think its wonderful that they do this every year and that they offer so many sizes, some seam rather rare. Someone must be ordering those sizes or I...

    Re: New De Vere 5108 Owner

    I would be interested in well made carriers. I could use a custom size, 5x8 inch, I shoot a lot with that format. I made a crude 4x5 holder because I couldn’t find the proper DeVere one.
