Here's the problem:
- I have a number of shutterless lenses that I'd love to try, and I'd love to move beyond the "black hat" shutter.
- I have a Packard shutter that would solve this problem.
- The next problem is that the outside dimensions of the Packard (6-1/2") is larger than the inside of my bellows attachment. (6")
What I need:
I need to construct a housing for my Packard shutter that will attach to the front standard (wooden) of my 8x10 Burke and James and will accept Technika and/or Calumet lensboards. (The B&J takes Technika boards, but I have a few lenses on Calumet boards which are just a tad larger.)
The final piece of this puzzle is that I have limited tools and marginal woodworking experience. I am not afraid of wasting a few pieces of wood, but I think I need a little guidance to get me past the starting line.
There may be further questions along the way.
