The 8x10 is nearly done, I got the lens mount and lens board made, and I received my M6 knobs to make it easier to use. The bellows are at full extension of 62cm or 24 inches.

Mixing up a batch of collodion for making negative wet plates for printing. The collodion needs to sit for a couple of weeks to ripen and clear up before use.

More progress with 8x10, front and rear standards are done along with the base and rack for focusing. I might get it done next weekend, we’ll see.

8x10 work in progress. Frames and back are done, now I just need to build the base and standards. Focus will be controlled with an SLR macro focus rack, cheap as chips from eBay.
