    Well the Symmar I own is on a size 1 Compur. If I'm not wrong, the cells have the same thread front and back, so you just have to reverse them.
    I have to try this, so I do not know if it works.

    Well, I ordered the stuff I need to the bellows ext. I got a baseplate, a 2nd rail clamp, a multi-purpose standard and a 4x5 square belows. I hope all this stuff fits ok.

    I also contacted Camera Bellows in the UK about making a 36" new bellows and they wanted GBP 165 for it. I need to supply the bellows frames. Hopefully Sinar will have them as I never see them come up on eBay.

    David, if you're watching tis thread, do you reccomend a 40" or a 36" bellows?
    How do you deal with the sag? Do you have those rings onthe bellows to take up sag?

    I'll check with CB to see if they can make an 14" - 18" 8x10 ext bellows rather than a full bellows. I'll see if they can make leather bellows.

    Thanks.

    Well, 40" is what I have, and it works. To reduce sag, I just rotate the bellows occasionally, and it seems to hold up pretty well. Or if that's not convenient to do at a particular moment, I just support the bellows in the middle with something, like a large sponge or a small box.

    Reggie - if, as you say, your 8x10 bellows extend to 24" or so (I would think they'd go longer than that!) - then you should be good to at LEAST 54" with a 4x5 bellows extension. I think the opening in the frame holding the bellows at the joint is around 5.5" square - isn't it? So that should mean that you'll be able to pull just around 30" of bellows draw (or close to it) on the 4x5 part before it starts impinging on the image - the way it appears to me at least.
