    contacted a machinist and they might take on my project
    but i have a feeling it won't work unless i do something outlandish too
    its not enough to mate 4 different lens cells that dont go together
    but even the machinist was doubtful it would have any bearing on
    the grain, or texture or contrast of my 8x10 film and making it
    more like cheap 35mm ...
    i live near an airport, maybe i will ask them to xray my film a few times
    its only a few hundred dollars a box

    he asked if i wanted to go amorphic
    i guess he wanted to adjust my cells
    or something radical, not sure what i will do now
    that he is asking serious questions ..

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    If you X-ray your X-ray film it becomes invisible. That way you can load it in daylight, but you have to close your eyes to see it. Has a great look when viewed through a looking glass.

    I don't know why I can't resist a straight answer...

    Get Paterson Texture Screen set #1. Put the "Reticulated Grain" negative in a slide mount and project it on your subject.

    Shoot, Develop and Print normally.

    patterson texture screen will make my reduced and enlarged my images ( 8x10, 11x14, 5x7, 4x5 negs )look like
    minox film!
    i think im all in,
    but how do i remove the screen from my patterson tanks, they are really small, do i have to enlarge them too ?

    ==

    thanks whitey,

    im getting a cup of coffee to DRINK in about 10 mins ...

    ===

    i was speaking the butcher at the local market
    who has been shooting LF for decades
    and when i told him of my problem ...
    he told me that in the old days
    he would put ground beef and pork in his developer and let it sit overnight
    scoop it out, and process his film in that, ... has anyone done this?
    i don't eat meat anymore, only textured vegetable protein and tofu
    will these work as well?

    The problem with grain the size of golf balls is if you take a picture of a golf ball it will get lost in the grain.

    I once hit a golf ball into a field of barley and it got lost in the grain, and the grain wasn't even the same size.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    I advise against stand developing in the refrigerator. It's hard to stand in one unless you are quite short or the fridge is quite big, and you will get very cold unless it's not plugged in. And doing it overnight is impossible because there isn't enough air in there unless you leave the door open.

    I'm still lost regarding the dark cloth. What does barley have to do with it? You're supposed to make beer and barley wine out of it, not shoot golf balls into it. Silly.
