    Hi Mike - Do you mean $30 is OK for just the raw fabric such as I am offering, or do you mean $30 for a finished curtain with windows and - heaven forbid - the metal edges?

    Best,
    Jon

    Hi Jamie - I could cut it to whatever width you would prefer. The curtain on a 5x7 Auto Graflex is around 7.5 inches. A 4x5 SLR would of course be narrower. What do you have in mind, perchance?

    Hi John - Well, the very best I keep squirreled away at an undisclosed vault deep inside Gringott's. If you ever see this one for sale it means you are attending my estate auction!

    Glad to hear the Century is well. I am sure it is shivering tonight.

    I was just wondering if you were selling the fabric by the width of the fabric bolt with enough length for a 5x7 curtain for that price. I have numerous cameras to work on including 2 series B 5x7s, and a couple of compacts. Or is the price per curtain width.

    Hi Jamie - The price is for a single curtain.

    What size(s) of Compact do you have? If the smaller variety, do you have a source for film?

    graflex material- shutter

If you have a Graflex giant SLR with a dry, brittle or cracked shutter curtain then this is a chance to bring the old girl back to life. I have some beautiful shutter cloth material for sale. It is modern rubberized nylon fabric - imagine glossy low-friction synthetic silk on one side and a smooth rubber face on the other. This material is absolutely light-tight. It has no pinholes whatsoever even under intense halogen light inspection. The attached photo shows the 'before and after' of my recent rebuild of a Press Graflex shutter. It will give you an idea of how gorgeous this material is.

    A length sufficient to rebuild a 5x7 SLR such as an Auto Graflex would be $35 plus a couple of dollars shipping cost from Massachusetts in the USA. For a 4x5 such as an RB Series B, the cost would be $30 plus the shipping.

    If you have a smaller project such as a Reflex Korelle or a Fed or Leica, then we can work out something reasonable as well.

    Due to its suppleness this material would also be excellent for a bellows rebuilding project, although I have not yet used it for this purpose.

    All the best to APUGers,

    Jon Koss

    Hi Jon,

    This is interesting stuff. I have a really old Zeis Ikon 4x5 reflexcamera with a curtain shutter that is dried out. And therefor not having the apropriate shuttertimes. I am thinking to repace that. I will measure up the shuttercurtain to see what the width will be.

    Regards,

    Peter
