I am merely passing this on from another forum that a retired Kodak film man by the name of Bob Shanebrook has created this book on everything about Kodak film making continuing on from early on to today.

I would be interested in the source reference to the other forum so that I can make Bob aware of it if he is not already aware.

Thanks.

Ok. Thanks. Ron and I are both in contact with Bob. And, I see that Bob has made a post there himself.

I just placed an order for the book as well. This, along with PE's book / DVD should be a major game changer.

Hi APUG,

Thanks for the interest in my book and the orders. I have made people aware of the book through my Kodak connections, photographic museums, APUG, and several other channels. The response has been good. I have orders from 18 different countries and almost every state. We have stacks of addressed envelopes ready for the books. Binding tests were scheduled for today. I expect to ship by Thursday.http://makingKODAKfilm.com

Ah, now that you're bumping...

I've placed my order, by means of making a paypal payment. Haven't had any acknowledgement; should I have gotten one? (It's been almost 2 weeks.)

Edit: An e-mail and a quick reply have solved my doubts. ;)

My PayPal payment hasn't been acknowledged after several days.

See Bob's note above. He is moving as fast as he can. If he can find time, I am to have lunch with him on the 26th so I can update you as well. He may not make it though due to all of his commitments. We'll see.

Glad I did not holiday any longer. I might have missed this one.

Should make a great companion to Kit Funderbucks' history of paper making at Kodak Park that I bought a few years ago.

With great surprise, my copy of Bob's book arrived today in the mail. I expected to get it at lunch on the 26th or later.

So, they are going out and they look beautiful. The final job is just great. You will love this book!

Great job Bob, and thanks.

Received my copy today. An incredible look inside Kodak...explaining enough to answer a bunch of questions. Goes a lot further illustrating what has been lost.

Thanks, Bob....fantastic work. Gives me a few ideas.

I got it today. It's a wonderfully printed book. I didn't think I'd be getting it until sometime next week.

Make yourself comfortable. There is a lot of very interesting information in there. Makes you appreciate the precision and attention to detail that went into the products that perhaps many of us took for granted -- I know I did.

I would give my (insert appropriate anatomical part here) to work there.

Well, you guys that have the book now see what I have been talking about. It is not hard to make B&W single layer products in your lab, but beyond that..... Well, it takes a few body parts!!! ;)

PE,

I envy your time at Kodak. When you are done with your book / DVD, maybe you can write your own story....

Look at the caption under Figure 93 in the book:

" ...To reduce vibration each coating station is mounted on its own isolated concrete pedestal secured in bedrock 75 feet below ground level..."

This kind of detail is really going to make it hard to scale a coater down to basement size -- anybody see my arm and a leg? ;)
