    I thought only the full plate camera had two - does your half plate have also two?

    No mine only has one, I thought perhaps it was a one off. Never really did a lot of research on the cameras. I collected perken son and rayment magic lanterns and the cameras were just to finish off the collection. Alas it got me into photography.

    Lucky for me....
    Just for comparison, could you show a picture of the plateholders that came with your cameras?

    Unusual to have these two brass tabs in pic 1, pic 2 shows the internal spring back plate in this case it is hinged to the holder, Pic 3 shows the optimus logo

    Interesting...it differs from mine...which has very flat metal strips as tabs at the end of the dark slides....will take a picture when I get home ...

    Here's a picture of the Perken plateholder with the metal tabs - it has the same innards as yours Andrew:

    Ah Ha! I have two of those didn't know who the maker was, someone has removed most of the screws from the hinges. Will have to get them sorted. How is the construction going?? I must say I take my hat off to you for wanting to do it to specs.

    Still very busy at my regular work before the holidays start.
    Indeed I always do restoration 'at specs as' you call it (just restored a full plate Eastman camera which had a broken brass part), therefore also during the holidays in a couple of weeks to get enough time to do this type of restoration work.

    Btw the breadboards are attached to the main board with wooden slides/stripes - you might be able to see them when looking at the side of the board. Can you say anything about the dimension of the slides (they are very tiny) - maybe a picture?
