    Camera Makers of Seattle Unite!

    There are few (4) of us in the Seattle area that are going to start building some 8x10 cameras this summer. We are looking to get together for our first meeting to finalize plan (and to make sure we can stand each other) the first week of July. If there are any others that are interested, now is the time to get in "on the ground floor" so to speak.

    While two of are are looking at using bamboo plywood, I haven't heard from the others. I have the woodshop (or garage that I can't fit cars into anymore because of the tools and wood), we'd love to have some machining expertise for the metal parts.

    Drop me a line here or at magic@stwd.com if interested.

    As one of the 4, I can endorse what magic823 is saying. Really, we would love to have a nice big group. I'm in the Tacoma area and will be driving up to Seattle for our get-togethers. I've got a woodshop too so if any other Tacomans want to jump in then we can do some of our work at my shop... if you don't have one

    My brother-in-law and I once drove up to Bellingham and back in a weekend to...get this, to buy a car! That was when we were both younger and dumber and each had a much lower tolerance for cafienated beverage.

    Anyway, my wife has relatives up there so, I could use that as an excuse... "Honey, it's been a while since we've seen your Uncle Doug and Aunt Marrion..."
    Hmmm....who knows?

    In anycase, please keep us posted on your progress and ideas. Always good to see what others are building.

    No, we are meeting tomorrow night at 8pm to setup how we want to do things, take a look at the plans I have, and talk about everything.
