Asanuma project camera – bellows update

I’m leaning again on Sandeha Lynch for the bellows on this camera. A brief update: after all of about 5 days in First Class Mail, the original bellows have arrived in Wales! I’m too excited right now – this is a huge milestone. Once Sandeha gets the bellows made, the camera will be ready to rock.

With Maddie’s help, I decided on a vibrant red for the bellows (Sandeha can accommodate many color requests). The exact shade can be seen on this Agfa Billy Zero (post from Nelsonfoto.com). Should make for a beautiful camera.

In the meantime, I’ll be adding hardware to the base plate this weekend. I also found an approximately 5/16″ thick board of planed cherry I resawed years ago; I plan to mill several lensboards from it this weekend, too. I want to be ready to hit the ground running as soon as the bellows get here.
