    Does anyone need a ground glass?

    Hi there,

    If anyone is interested, I would be willing to make a couple of ground glass screens, up to 8x10 for free (well, other than postage costs). I have some glass left over from a recent project, and if I can help a couple of people out then that would be great.

    As well as being ground, the edges would be cleaned and the corners clipped. If you are interested then let me know and I'll tell you exactly what I'd need to know to make them up.

    Cheers,
    David.

    Hi David

    I've got a pretty old whole plate camera with an equally old screen that could usefully be replaced. I'll step aside meantime though, since someone might drop by with a broken /damaged GG whose need is greater than mine.

    Thanks, Peter

    Hello Peter,

    That's fine - you were the first to reply! So, can you either reply to this, or PM me, with the overall dimensions (mm) of the glass screen, and if you want them to have clipped corners also jot down how far back from the imaginary corner you want them clipped (I say imaginary because if you've got a clipped screen there won't be any corners!).

    I can draw the lines on for you, or leave it blank for you to draw your own lines on. Let me know.

    Cheers,
    David.

    Peter: quick update - the glass is cut to size and I'll be grinding the edges smooth this evening. If I get the opportunity I'll grind the screen tomorrow.

    I think you've got the sequence of events wrong.

    You make the first for an enemy, the second for a friend and the third for yourself.

    Just kidding, I thing this is really great of you!

    I'm ahead of myself, since the wife spent the evening doing some stained glass work, I figured that I would amuse myself by continuing with the ground glass!

    So, here it is so far - the first image shows the glass cut to size based on a template drawn up on paper, although it's quite hard to see against the paper.


    And here it is after the first grinding. I'm just holding it up behind my FKD whilst I was photographing a pineapple (don't ask!). All seems to be well so far...
