Had to farm out fabrication of the current set of brackets and especially the coupler that goes between the cameras...
Dan, I have a nice little Schneider Göttingen Aertotar 500mm f:6.6 that could use some bracketing - the only camera I have with a front strong enough to hold it doesn't have enough extension... Besides it's a tele design, flange focal distance about 40cm. But that old German Reisekamera only goes to 32cm. A 20cm tube? Large catfood tin (empty)?
