Hello APUG! If you are over the Seahawks beating up on North Carolina, we should meet again this weekend. The shop will be open Saturday and Sunday for anybody who wants to peek in and see what we are up to. This week the shop will be opening at 9AM and closing when we are bushed and need a movie. We will be making the Front Focus Frame and doing the box joints. Yay! woodworking again, getting sick of making knobs. Hopefully by the end of the day we should have several cameras with their first moving parts. We will be making all of the parts that move the lens for focusing. This involves a little metal lathe work, but an aspect new to some of the members, using dies in the tailstock to thread the focus rod. Also we will solder the pinions in place on the rods. Then we will mate metal with wood by installing the focus and focus lock knobs and we will finally get to see if the lock works as well as it should. Anyone who is interested is invited, email me for directions. We are finally past the drudgery and into a new and exciting phase of camera construction. If you have a pet Llama, bring him too.
