Some parts

WordPress just released an upgrade, so I think I can post cleanly again.

The parts in the center of this picture are the beginning of the base rail system of the camera. If you look through my notes you will see the drawing of it. ( It is very rewarding when I can draw something out and make the part to match.) The rails will be held in place with some Al plate attached to the center and one on the outside. The contact surface will have some stick’um frictionless tape designed to reduce wear on factory parts. 

The parts you see around the outside are the last stages of the film holders. AS you can see the cuts have become quite complicated in order to ensure that the joins don’t overlap. My thinking is that if there is going to be a light leak, it will likely be at the point of a joint, so I want the joint sot be hidden if possible and not overlaping to avoid pass through light. The need a few more set-ups to finish them off, but seem to be fitting together well.

Anyway, I am back in the shop this week, so hopefully I’ll have more progress to post by next week.
