I broke the shaft for the front focussing rail while out photographing in the Otways rainforest a month and a half ago. I had to pull my Tachihara 8x10 triple extension apart to get to the broken piece. Fortunately my partner's brother was able to fix it and he sent it back to me a week ago. On Saturday, I started putting it back together, but I managed to break the shaft that moves the rear standard forwards for wide angle work.
I feel like a real klutz at the moment, but I'm hoping that I can get it fixed by one of the metalwork teacher's at the Institution I work at, before I leave for Alice Springs.
I was going to put the camera together, try out the Efke 25 that I had bought, and then proces and print today, but it didn't happen.
That's my bitch for the day.
