    I have been badgering this fellow I met at the View Camera Conference a few year back to share his experiences with bellows building. I received an e-mail from him yesterday saying he has completed, and published on his web site, what he referred to as “a few notes on the subject.”

    He has kindly consented to my posting of the link.

    Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on “Bellows Building.” An interesting read.

    Excellent. Thanks for posting the link.

    I have made bellows before but probably not by the best method.

    Thanks. I'll add it to my library in case I ever get things picked back up to where I can think about building a camera.
