I just wanted to thank all of you on apug and in internetland for all of your help. I have just completed restoring a 5x7 Eastman View 2D which spent many years in the window of a now defunct camera shop. The many things that that I was able to find out from old posts and from the many answers to my queries enabled me to finish the project. Western Bellows of Etiwanda, CA redid the bellows and Chelsea Silverplating of Philadelphia, PA brass plated the steel springs that had rusted off their plating. Enclosed are before and after photos. Thanks again
