    Thanks Steve n Steve.

    Re the spring back. No it's more like the Jon Grepstad design.
    Looking at the Razzolok back, I have use something similar on a Fotokor1 that I converted for 5x4.
    As soon as the back is finished I will post images showing better detail .

    Still working on the spring-back. I needed some flat spring metal and brass strips, found the bolt at the scrap yard and plenty of old saw blades in the shed.

    +1 and I would love to try one myself sometime, but sadly I'm not the most skilled when it comes to woodworking.
    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    This simply means that you'll build two cameras to have one At least it's what happened to me when I built my camera, but it's been great fun.

    Hadn't thought of it that way, kind of two for one.

    Plan 'B' the saw blades even after reducing the size still have loads of tension. So I had a hunt in the junk box and found some small springy material that was once part of the mechanism of a vertical blind.

    A stainless steel kitchen spatula or an artist's pallet knife are good sources of springy material.

    In car's wipers (hope this is the right word) there are two stainless steel blades that can be used as springs (it's what I used for my own project).

    It is. Windscreen wipers in the UK and windshield wipers in the US.

    That's a source I hadn't thought of. Thanks.
