    Fantastic!

    Now check 'T' mine was also missing an 11X14 back, the Deardorf factory back I bought needed 'T' adjusted to RR standard which Richard Ritter did when he made my new RR film holders

    RR also installed a Bale/Bail Back, which I like

    I made my own GG

    I've made my own ground glass, probably 30 years back. My Dad was a Rock hound. He had the magic dust. I started with some white stuff, I think it was aluminum oxide. It was taking longer than my young self, got out the carbide, that was really fast. The carbide worked OK for light tables etc, but it was too course. We (My Dad) converted an old 11x14 process type into an 8x10 view camera. He made the back. We didn't have springs, I was trying to figure out what to do, this is pre internet. I stopped back over to the house. Dad had made wood springs out of some strips of hickory. He made a bail/bale out of wood too. It worked great. I used that back on my 11x14 Folmer and Schwing before I got my V8.

    Circling back to say that I have pushed back the move while I have new steel treads welded to the seven step staircase leading down to the basement. The old treads were rusting out and no longer safe. I'll update with pictures in a week or so.

    As for Dusty, no word yet about his trip to the basement

    We hope he made it safely
