  1. Re: Dry Mounting Press / Change the Rubber carpet

    I was able to get a new pad for my Seal press. Maybe a pad for a Seal press fits yours, or maybe you could trim to fit.

    Re: Weekend Mystery Quiz

    Right to left movement would be shift. Where is the pointer? Does the scale move or does the pointer move during shift.

    Re: 4x10 how does it work and what do I need

    Is it really that much of a waste of money to just crop 8x10? The enlarger is the same, the film holders more expensive, the lenses are the same, the camera just as expensive. Plus cropping 8x10 give...

    Re: nice new lens, but sticky shutter

    Not being able to do simple repairs on lenses and shutters puts one at a serious disadvantage in this line of work.
  5. Re: Which would be easier to build - 8x10 SLR or TLR?

    I have only made wetplates with sunlight. The only strobes I own won't be strong enough (camera mounted units). I'll let others that have tried this chime in here if this will work.
  6. Re: Which would be easier to build - 8x10 SLR or TLR?

    How about a reflex viewer for the back. Seems like the number of steps to make a photograph would be the same.

    Compare:

    YOUR SLR:
    1) focus compose
    2) close shutter
    3) set aperture
    4)...

    Some form of motor drive and/or multi-film-holder interchange device will be handy. Will it be Autofocus?

    Re: Front element chip: How bad is this?

    Isn't the idea with a lens like that to make blurry or low contrast pictures anyway?
  10. Re: Experience in printing from 4x5 and 8x10 on paper 95x120 cm

    Thank you for sharing. Since you are on a forum with perhaps the largest group of large format photographers with large format enlargers, do you mind answering some technical questions?

    I disassembled, cleaned, lubricated and re-painted a used Saunders 20x24. These really are built better than the smaller Saunders easels.

    Re: 300mm lens 4x5" landscape

    2 stop less, so the lens is an f11 300mm. Still with 300mm FL, so not a telephoto, even though they call it a "Teleconverter."
