    Camera makers email groups

    I used to be a member of two email groups, one for camera makers and one for wood-and-brass, on the same server but I seem to have lost their details. I wonder if anyone has them?

    Thanks for sharing this, that was a link to our taste!

    It's super to see people build their own stuff and to us it doesn't matter if it is a 4x5" pinhole made out of a cardboard box or a high tech piece of panoramic Lego.

    John,

    I am a member of that Yahoo Group, but it is a little on the quiet side, and of course it is not one of those I mentioned.

    Jorge,

    The Grepstad site is well known to me and is indeed a good source of information for camera builders; after all his design is probably the most influential among modern hobbyist camera builders, thanks to his book. However, several of the links of his page seem to be dead; I should have downloaded Daniel Rhoades' camera design drawings before his site went offline... *sighs*

    So the search continues: I am still searching for brass rack-and-pinion gears, preferably available locally. among other necessary parts.

    Perhaps something you want has been archived here:

    http://web.archive.org/web/200307281...s.bizland.com/

    I have been able to locate brass rack but no luck on getting matching pinions made from brass. I would appreciate any leads you may turn up.

    What was the "wood and brass" group you mentioned earlier? Do they have an archive?

    Hello! I hope this isn't too late! My site is still up, I just got rid of the .bizland part of the site URL. The site's address is www.rhoadescameras.com. If you have any questions or need any help you can email me at danielrhoades@sbcglobal.net.
