    Jim,
    I can't see the slit you refer to on your picture. Sorry.
    Here's a link to some pics of the camera that the seller had posted on the LF forum. The last one has the best (?) view of the strap holders.

    Diane, I see what you mean. I made my brass parts to run the strap through out of some small sheet. They are 1 1/4" x 1 5/8" I came down from the top edge and cut a slot with my dremel about 3/8" down and about 1" wide. I then put it in a small vice and bent it up into the right position. It looks to me like you could copy the existing design. It is very easy to do if you have a dremel and a few cutoff wheels. I keep the worn cutoff wheels with a smaller diameter for slots like this. I'm still trying to figure out how to age brass to get it to look like my 20's brass I have on the camera now. If you have any more questions let me know I'll do what I can to help.

    Jim,
    Where did you get the knobs for your camera? The one in my link above is missing one on the rear bed on the right side. I am planning to try the local hardware store, but haven't done it yet.

    Dianne, I spent some time on E-bay searching for camera parts. I found several old Kodak parts and a partial 2-D that I used all of the metal off of. The nobs you have look to be nickle. You can try the e-bay route and look for parts. My Seneca Improved 8x10 has nickle hardware and you could look for some parts like that. I did get some brass nobs for the 8x20 front standard that Barry Young did for me and they are nice. I know Richard Ritter could do it for you also. You may have to send them a nob for comparison if you want to keep it authentic. That is a nice set up you got. Different format . Nice that you got holders and film. Did you re-do the bellows?

    Jim,
    I used the B&S bellows patching kit to repair the bellows. I thought I'd try that first over a full bellows replacement. I did that because I have another bellows (for an 8x10 studio camera) that is in worse shape that needs to be replaced. This camera that the link above is to is a whole plate, 6.5" x 8.5" camera.

    For many different styles of knobs, try www.smallparts.com and McMaster-Carr

    I doubt you will find nickel plated, but if you get something like brass you should be able to send it out for plating.

    Barry, thank you for that. Sometimes I get excited and the spelling just goes down the tubes!! I appreciate it when someone points it out. I was never a great student while in school. I leave that up to my three son's. I guess that is why I'm taking so long on the bellows for the 8x20. You know it is that math thing!!!!
