    Hey there Doug!

    I was wandering about APUG and found the following link in the camera building forum...don't know if it's going to be of any use to you (scroll down towards the bottom of the page) but you never know...

    Everlasting flipping genius. I have been sweating the spring thing for a 3x4 cigar box camera I have half done. Now the solution is obvious.

    I can't take credit for thinking of it, only for remembering it. I believe it was originated by either "Marv" or "Ralph Y." on f295, for the equivalent of a cigar box camera in 4x5.
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Doug, I have several plastic 4x5 camera bodies that were originally used for evidence cameras many years ago, pm me and I'll send you some pics, your choice for the cost of postage.
