    Thanks for the update!

    Most of the top-of -the-rangeContinental cameras - with bellows of 100cm or more - had a support system to prevent bellows droop or bellows wear on the underside.
    When the distance between the bottom of the bellows was around a cm or less, there was an applied metal frame around a central pleat with tiny wheels underneath which ran on the wooden base.
    With larger distances - about 5cm - there was a series of hinged flaps attached to the front and rear standards which expanded and contracted along with bellows movement.

    Thanks Steven. I have the hinged flaps mechanism under there. Hopefully the bellow don't wear too quickly, even with that, as they do still rub slightly with extension and contraction. Many thanks for all of your help. I have to say, I really love the design of these Continental cameras. If the cost wasn't prohibitive I would definitely be searching for an excellent condition large one to ship over and preserve. This one will be a workhorse and for that it is ideal, but a well-kept one of these must really be a sight to behold.

    And, by the way, I have not given up on the larger format back. Just want to start with the 5x7 and 8x10 formats, as they are most accessible in the short term. My aspiration is that the 11x14 and 15x15 backs will be designed and built shortly, hopefully by end of summer.
