    With Satin Snow no longer accepting new orders (at least that's what the website says), are there any sources for 8x20 ground glass? The Canham site implies they have some available but I haven't checked with them directly, and a Google search doesn't turn up much.

    Actual overall size is not important as I'm building a back for a Kodak D2.

    Does anyone use (2) 8x10 glasses simply mounted next to each other. Opinions on that approach?

    Thanks
    John

    Contact this GG maker. He has a direct eBay store. http://stores.ebay.com/Brilliant-Ground-Glass_W0QQssPageNameZstrkQ3amefsQ3amesstQQtZkm

    He's made custom GGs for some old Graflex cameras of mine, as well as a new GG for my 8x10 Canham, and 4x5 Arca-Swiss. They are fabulous. His GG is better than the GG that came with my Canham.

    He's quick with his turn around, with good prices. I'm sure he can make an 8x20 for you, but better have him say that.

    Good luck.

    John, I can highly recommend Steve Hopff at brilliant ground glass in the link above. I got an 8x10 and 11x14 glass with grids from him and the work is top notch. I will eventually get another 8x20 GG when I can.
