    Yeah, Ian - I can't wait to have this one in use, either!

    Oooh - cherry!



    I've been sitting on this board of somewhat curly cherry for about 8 years. *Glad I finally found a good use for it. *The board planed out to 7/8" thick; at 17" by 6", it's more than ample for the insert and ground glass holder. *And with a coat or two of oil and some gloss lacquer, it's gonna be beautiful. *The photo doesn't show the color - it's a soft, creamy pink, like good cherry should be.

    Think this is going to be a woodworking week!

    Got out in the cold garage today and made the base of the 4x5 insert:

    This morning, I fit the film holder to the back.

    Next, I'll start on the ground glass holder.

    Planning ahead a little: I have a nice set of springs I'm harvesting off the Graflex spring back that came with the Asanuma. Black anodized, two-piece, should work great. Saves me some metalwork, too, which is good, 'cause I hate working metal. But that still leaves the ground glass clips. I've made them before, and they turned out kludgy. Got onto Lee Valley's hardware site and found some Tansu screen corners (specifically, I'm looking at B and C). I think these might be just the ticket for glass retainers. I'll check at Ace, too, but these might just work.

    Now that now looks very like the Roll film adaptor I made for my Quarter plate, and is close to my next step with my Houghtons Duchess.

    Essentially I'm about to make almost the same except that it'll just hold the 5x4 DDS (UK term for cut film holder) in the same register as the current glass focus screen, which will save a lot of work.

    I've now made my new lens boards, the camera now has the Ross lens/Thornton Pickard shutter and also there's a 165mm Tessar on a second board

    Yeah, Ian, the focus screen part is next. Started planing cherry this afternoon, but I need to (accurately) measure the distance to the film plane, add in the thickness of the glass, and have at it. Figuring half-laps at the corners, stopped rabbets for the glass. And I found a scrap of ground glass from the last 8x10 screen I made, so that's done!

    Made the ground glass holder today. Will cut the rebate for the glass a little later.

    Went ahead and routed the rabbets and glued up the frame:

    Will clean up the corners with a chisel and finish fitting with planes after the poly glue cures.
