    More plans please... Especially with detailed drawings or downloadable files, including if possible, hardware templets for metal pieces.

    They got 'em used on eBay.

    Check out our own Camera Building and Modification forum, there's 34 pages of threads full of excellent information. Again I've never built one, but I'm a self confessed ambitious, uneducated tinkerer.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Send me your e-mail address and I will send you what I have. It's not a complete set of plans but there is enough to get started and work out the rest yourself.

    Thank you, Fleath and thank you Steve, PM sent.

    Has anyone here tried the white, rubber? backed "blackout material" sold by fabric shops for curtain making, to use as bellows material? It's fairly thin, durable and sewn to a piece of black fabric, makes a great dark cloth.

    The "blackout material" I purchased is to thick for small bellows but it may be usable for 8 by 10 bellows. I'm using it for my dark cloth and even then it's a little to heavy.

    I have made some so-so bellows using 4 mil black vinyl. The reason there were so-so was the cloth I used for the out side cover, made the bellows too stiff, and I did not get the folding looking good because the stuffiness of the bellows assembly.
    It's not the camera......

    Flip side.
    My bargains:

    1953 Speed Graphic, 2 lenses, 5 holders, flash. Everything working. $100
    Kodak 4x5 Master View, 1 lens, 4 holders, case. $50. Working. A monorail wasn't for me.

    I have seen folks take a beater Crown or Speed Graphic and cobble together a pinhole camera that accepts cut film and roll film holders. I have also seen the results of taking 3 beater Speed/Crown cameras and assemble one working "Borg" camera. It works quite well.
