A year or so ago, I purchased a Beseler 45 chassis advertised on Craig's List for the express purpose of turning it into a copy stand capable of supporting my Calumet 400 series view camera. It's still sitting in my basement. The problem isn't being able to do the necessary work; it's simple inertia! I don't see any particular problem that can't be handled with basic tools and a modicum of woodworking skill. Perhaps this thread will provide the impetus I need. If I finally manage to get off my dead aspirations, I'll post a photo of my results.
