    Donald,
    Thanks for the box camera conversion stuff. That is quite helpful. I'll also look into the Gitzo shutter. I think I have what I need now, except time.
    "Lazy Susan set" ....that's hilarious.
    Thanks everyone

    Just a shutter addendum- I found this cool thing that talks about leaf shutters.

    Pretty cool and the site also shows how to clean a Synchro-Compur. Very handy.

    I got a friendly machinist to re-do the 6-7/16" hole to 8.5" now.

    It gives me a 1/4" border to attach an inner plate (which will contain the circularly placed holes) to. I think I can fit 7x 66 mm barely. 6 to be conservative.

    I'm counting on this camera being heavy enough that the rotation of the Lazy Susan bearing won't induce vibration. Actually for f/stop, that's not a problem as it's done before exposure. It's the concept of an hand-powered leaf shutter that's gonna rock the boat, I guess.

    You mean like the two-leaf, hand (pull string) or air powered Packard? Or practically any large format shutter set to B? Yep, a major revolution there...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.
