so it's flannel hats now?
Luckily I do my own sewing so I can't get hit with the steep labor costs!

I have something else I've been meaning to ask about.
I have an itch to get another brass lens.
However, I'm not sure what!
Actually I'd like a soft focus petzval type lens.
BUT I don't really know much about the older lenses.
Any suggestions for wetplate work?
I'd like it to cover 8X10 and be suitable for portrait and landcape.
However, I don't want to pay a lot of money.....
I know, I know have my cake and eat it to..
One reason I ask is this guy has a bunch on the block
thanks
