    Re: Look for someone to make bellows

    I used a forum member for my new 5x7 bellows. I was happy with them and he was able to get them out fast. Postage was costly to the UK was my only rub.

    Re: Look for someone to make bellows

    I'm tossing up between Custom Bellows, ecbuyeronline from China, and trying to get Intrepid to sell me a set. It's for a new design so I can accommodate a (small) range of sizes.

    Or I could make my own, of course...

    Re: Look for someone to make bellows

    For folks in the US it seems crazy to not choose Custom Bellows at this point. The USD is strong so cost isn't really a huge factor at the moment since they price things in UKP. For instance, they were the only ones I talked to who could properly make a Baby Deardorff (true 4x5 Deardorff) bellows that had the original specs of the camera (i.e. long extension bellows that could be folded down flat). Other makers didn't have the material to guarantee that.

    I sent them a RFQ a couple of days ago, but have yet to hear back from them. Are they typically this slow to answer?

    If you're already in the UK, for me it's a no brainer. L

    I always use Custom Bellows

    Communication is good, they don't answer right away every time but they do answer
    and turnaround is fast

    the current exchange rate helps too

    Rumours are dangerous folks. I plan to buy from them in the coming year, their reputation is sterling!

    I posted their link as an apology for even considering the unthinkable.
    and here I posted a correction Mr Luis...post #20 in this thread, September 17, 2015.

    and I did buy a very nice bellows from them in 2016

    get the facts straight please
