Carbon Transfer printing

Does anyone know anybody offering carbon transfer courses in the UK, or would anyone doing this process be happy to have me visit for a day to watch and learn how they do it?

Thanks

Re: WTB:Arca 171mm lens boards

I could spare a 13mm and a 30(?)mm recessed lens board. The 13mm board has had the latch groove machined in that the earlier boards required, although it isn't the cleanest of grooves at one end, but it is fully functional.

pm me if you are interested.

Re: A modular LF setup?

And finally for now, I've made a 5x4 reducing back for the 5x7 with a back that I bought off an auction site: untitled-0776.jpg and with a 6x12 back attached: untitled-0779.jpg At the moment, I have got as modular as I can and don't see the point of making a 10x8 to 5x4 back, but I would still like ...

Re: A modular LF setup?

The Lensboards for the 10x8 and 5x7 have been made from MDF for the recessed back and thin mahogany sheets that I purchased from a modelling shop (I used Gladstones). If I wanted a board 1/8" thick then I glued 1/16" sheet material at right angles to the other sheet to give it strength. The board on...

Re: A modular LF setup?

As you can see from the two previous posts, the original bakelite knobs have all been replaced with new Brass ones that I turned on the Lathe. When I say "I" turned It was actually my Father's Lathe, and he controlled it, but I told him what I wanted so that sort of makes me in control! Unfortunatel...

Re: A modular LF setup?

Most of my Lenses are on Wista Linhof style boards so the first idea was to make a board for the Ansco 10x8 that would allow me to use them. I have an old Toyo monorail that had a lens board that allowed it to take the Wista boards which I had bought of a well known auction site. The lensboard was j...

A modular LF setup?

Last April I decided to try a larger format than 5x4 and bought a 10x8 advertised as "spares or repair", and in June I got carried away and puchased a 5x7 that also required a total rebuild to get it working. I always intended to use these cameras and therefore my priority was to get them working ra...

Walker Titan

I need (want) a new LF camera to take abroad, and I am wondering about a Walker Titan XL (5x4) or a Toyo 45 A II.

Does anyone have any comparison of the two, and even better, a Walker Titan that I could view in Yorkshire?

many thanks
Bruce
