    New Bellows Construction Page Uploaded

    Hey gang,

    I've just uploaded a webpage on construction of a square bellows I built for a fullplate wetplate collodion camera I'm building.

    Here's the URL if you are interested:

    http://my.net-link.net/~jsmigiel/bellows.html

    The bellows measures 11.5" on the outside with a 9.5" interior opening. It extends easily to 30" and compesses to under 2". However, I've written the directions so that any dimensions could be adapted to the procedure for other designs and requirements. I've also included a materials list as well as rationale for building the bellows along with the design considerations.

    Hope someone may find it helpful.

    Joe

    Thanks Joe,

    I am going to building a couple of bellows this summer and will use your page as a guide. Keep up the good work!
