110a Packfilm Conversion
Since we have a Bridgeport milling machine I thought I would mill out the cast magnesium/aluminum body of an old 110a so a packfilm back would fit in with no other modifications. It does, once enough clearance is made. Then, mysteriously and wonderfully, the screw holes line up perfectly with existing rivet holes in the old 110a. Amazing. A little color on the Polahide and the bellows, some through the transparency lighting, and off we go to The Black Gallery.
Don't do this with your 110B! Let a pro make that into a 4x5 camera.
