    Hello, folks

    Hopefully I've negotiated the registration & membership correctly...I guess we'll see if this note posts or not. Last week, a buyer of one of my light seal kits mentioned this site, and I have to say it looks very good. Sorry I've missed it up to this point. Some of you may know me...on E-Bay I'm Interslice. That's about it for now. I use, collect and repair cameras, sell light seal and a few other things. I look forward to getting to know you all.

    Indeed, welcome in this place. But you better watch out - there is a very infectuous disease going round this forum. You'll know when the virus has struck when you start having rather inexplicable yearnings for large or even ultra large format photography.

    We see it happen here on a daily basis. Just last week someone bought a new toy: a 7x17" back.

    There is no known cure yet.

    Cheers,

    Welcome. Bought one of your kits some time ago - still have most of it left (you do realise you are doing yourself out of repeat custom by including so much stuff! ). Still, there's always more old cameras whose light seals have turned to goo...

    Cheers, Bob.

    Welcome Jon, I too have used your seal kit and was very pleased with the product and service. This is a great place to visit and talk photography. You are amongst friends here.

    Wow, thanks folks!

    A nice surprise! A warm welcome and a compliment on the seal kits, too. Nice way to make a very hot Saturday morning seem a bit nicer. Oh, and let's see, I received a couple of warnings...there was one on medium & large format gear. I think I successfully divorced myself from that almost 30 years ago, but occasionally I get a temptatio...nope, can't have it. Can't do that again. And what else? The size of the kits. Actually the kits have just been improved, and the improvement was done to benefit the users of medium & large format equipment. In lieu of the 1/16" neoprene (which was really sort of redundant since there was 1.5mm open-celled foam), the kits now come with a sheet of 2mm open-celled foam which was used in some medium & large format gear. But the size of the kits has not decreased and the price has remained the same...I gave up becoming another Bill Gates by selling camera light seal materials several years ago. Thanks again for the nice welcome. Oh, in case anyone here needs any, I also have some nice shutter cloth (very thin and consistent--works well in Leica and clones) & shutter ribbons, also commercial double sided pressure sensitive adhesive (for many applications including but not limited to: Leather replacement, re-shuttering, re-fastening dial covers, re-fastening lens focus ring cushions, etc.). I sell it by word of mouth since the demand is occasional.
    Jon
