    I am working on an Eastman restoration. I believe it is a 2D (there are no markings) without front tilt (which I would like if I can find a front with tilt).

    I am looking for any scrap or extra hardware, ground glass, bellows, a front standard with tilt, and a rail extension. Basically a whole camera :smile: I dont want to just buy a whole working camera as I'd like to restore the one I have (restoration is my hobby) using original parts and I dont think I can afford to buy a complete camera. Some things, like the bellows, I can make but I would like the rest to be restored from authentic parts. I believe very strongly in shooting cameras that I've re-built, restored, and given a second lease on life. I feel like the camera gives me something extra when I have that relationship with it. I'm sure many of you understand. If anyone has any incomplete or parts cameras and are willing to donate or sell parts please let me know. I very much appreciate it. I also have a few cameras that I would be willing to trade if interested.

    Thanks everyone :smile:

    Hi Francesco. I believe I have an extension rail for the 8x10 2D that I thought was going to fit a 5x7. I'll get the details when I get back to school next week and PM you.
