    The problem is not just the amount of items I'm accumulating but the time I'm spending hunting around car boot sales and auction houses looking for them ! I'm actually blaming my girlfriend for all this ...... ever since she picked up a mint condition and fully working Kodak Panoram for £2.50 at a boot sale and then sold it online for £375 !! At the time, neither of us knew it's potential value, she just thought it looked cute.

    I thought I had enough when my camera-countometer reached the thirty mark. Then I inherited another thirty which my father has collected.

    And I still find myself looking at more!

    I temporarily banned myself from ebay to alleviate this problem.:rolleyes:

    Walter, I am noticing that in your collection you have the Kodak vest pocket.. so I am taking this occasion to jump in with a side track question.

    I have several models of a kodak folder similar to the vest pocket. The below, like that of the vest pocket, is held to the wood frame of the body by metal claws. It does look like they would not bend without breaking if I was trying to open them to release the below.
    I am trying to replace the below of one of my kodak folders.

    Any suggestions/ideas as to how I could proceed?

    I started a year and a half ago with an autographic 2C for $5. Little did I know it would spiral out of control from there. The worst (perspective dependant) is when you buy a "lot" of stuff just to get at a nice looking Seneca, promise yourself you'll get rid of the rest, and then a year later it's still cluttering up your house.

    What're you doing putting these things in a drawer? Mine, to my girlfriend's disgust, are on top of every bookcase, piled on top of my table saw in the basement (a whole pyramid of 116 box cameras), covering an entire Ikea Billy bookcase, and a couple of end tables. On the good side, as I point out, they're limited to the basement and one room.

    Keeping the dust off them until I can get a nice cabinet or something. I really bought them to use anyway, so I take one out when I want to use it.
