    Horseman Woodman 4x5! My best description of the Woodman is limp. Weak all the way around, if only the Shen Hao was available when I bought this sucker new.

    FOR SALE: Beautiful Horseman Woodman 4x5 made of fine "cherry" wood and handsome stainless steel. Magnificently crafted, made to take years of use and abuse. (Just don't drop the camera from a distance of 1 1/2 feet or higher) Only slight marks and one minor crack where the front standard broke off. Glued professionally and shouldn't affect performance at all. Rear standard has a few "bends" in the metal pieces really insignificant though. All and all like new. $450 or best offer
    :rolleyes:

    Don't believe a word of it, it's really worth that and so very much more.

    Joking aside, I can't quite understand what you're saying here. Are you saying that the Horseman Woodman is a lousy camera because it broke when you dropped it from a height onto a hard surface? I think all of us have had lucky escapes, but generally you really must expect this to happen, particularly with view cameras designed to be light and portable.

    Regards,

    Two pieces of darkroom equipment come to mind a) a Jessops hand held vacuum cleaner that had no suction whatsoever and b) the multigraph head on my Durst L1200. It is restrictive, fairly difficult to use and all but unsupported for new paper types. Anyone with an Ilford Multigrade 500H head want to do a swap?

    Absolutely the worst equipment in "my" darkroom is the Mate's washer and dryer!

    Time for small tank development only - no enlarging while in operation. (They do serve as a convenient table though.)
    I love the smell of fixer in the morning. It smells like...creativity!
    Truly, dr bob.

    I would have to say that the worst piece of photographic junk I've ever had was a CDS light meter I picked up in East Berlin back in 1980. I don't remember the brand, but looked like an Eastern Bloc attempt at a Luna-Pro. The ONLY consolation was that I was able to exchange US Dollars for East German Marks in West Berlin at an incredible rate (about 10 East Marks to the Dollar), so it only cost me a few bucks. That same shopping trip also provided me with one of my best buying experiences, a 20mm f/4 Flektogon in M42 mount, also for next to nothing!

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    I don't know, Bob. Sometimes they come in handy.

    And then there was the lens that I hoped would have that smooth classic look, but turned out to be the essence of bad bokeh--
