    I had a little block of steel machined with three holes - one to allow the block to slip over the monorail rod, a second tapped at 1/4-20 for the tripod socket, and a third little oil hole to lube...

  10. Omega Frankencam

    Somebody was throwing away an old Omega 35mm enlarger, so I harvested the monorail segment and made some additions. I found these quirky 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" single sheet film holders on ebay for a steal,...

    10 photographers you should ignore

    Teaching pinhole to kids

    I had good success in New Orleans with kids 6-15. I found the "slide lectures" were of interest to only a select few... would suggest a simple telescoping tube (or set of tubes) with waxed-paper...
