    WTB: Polaroid 405 dark slide (how-to inside...)

    1. Rummage through your LF parts / doodads / project bins and find that broken 405 back and see if the darkslide is in perfect working order (no cracks).

    2. Email me at zuikography at gmail and say: "Will, got one for ya!"

    3. Receive a reasonable (we'll figure that one out together) payment and a boatload of gratitude

    Thank you.

    A piece of thin stainless steel sheet will work.

    I made mine out of this plastic sheet. It's a fairly close match of the original. Is bendy, though.

    I appreciate the DIY suggestions.
    That will come handy if I can't score for the authentic one.

    Johnielvis, can I bother you with a phone snapshot or something, to see what a graflex film pack adapter (and the darkslide) look like?

    Though most of them are probably 4x5, which means they have to be cut down to size. A 3x4 would probably be closer. Likewise a darkslide from a regular film holder might work, but some are too thick (I've tried).

    A gentle bump.
    Still looking.
