    But how do you do the movements with this standard? From the picture it looks like it's fixed/glued.
    If you look at the image of the similar Half plate there's only rise & fall on the front standard, the lens board is just sat high because with no lens attached it does

    The standard has two screw which I filed to fit the key ways, them filed palt after fitting so there's a good fit between standard and focus bed.




    There's a small amount of rear tilt, whether enough is another question.

    Now finished designing, making & fitting the bellows.





    The camera folds up neatly, but I need to make a lens cap and the carrying strap.



    Just 3 brass fittings to go which is where help would be appreciated

    I can easily draw them, I've not yet had time but they are quite simple. I'll draw them up tomorrow in Coreldraw.

    One is another small stop plate shown below that the darkslides fit up to.

    Looking at the knob, I'm wondering if there is a captive nut in the front panel to lock it in place - If there is, don't suppose you'd know what thread it is ?

    If this is a British made camera, I'd suspect it would either be a B.A. or a Whitworth.

    There is a captive nut in the front panel, I've not found anything that fits so far. The camera's now in Turkey so I'm not sure how I'll check the thread, a small knob of a Bowens Monolight flash was very close, right size but wrong thread

    I'll see what threaded bits I have on a couple of TP shutters and see if they fit, then ascertain what thread they are.

    The roll film back adaptor is now under way.

    Impressive work!! Looks great. Are you going to disguise the roll film holder so it looks like wood?

    Vinyl wood finish covering

    No, sleight of hand, who will notice when I slip the holder in fast take the shot & remove, it'll be an illusion

    I have made another lens board and fitted a modern coated 105mm f3.5 Trinar, in a Compur shutter, it's cell focussing so I could focus the camera/lens at infinity on the ground glass and use the cells for focussing, it's hyper focal point is marked.

    On the other hand I'll also look out for some quarter plate dark-slides to compliment the camera so that it's as original as possible.

    Wade, it's very easy to adapt the film back I bought from you as the register is much greater/further back on the camera/screen. So I just cut a piece of wood to slide into the camera and then mount the back to that, shimming to the correct register. I have a pair of Pacemaker lens board sliders that I can use to lock the back in place, like a Graflok back. Sounds harder than it should be in practice.

    Paul will get back to you in a couple of days re- the knob/thread.
