Mike, Im computer engineering and I like more the Yashica XD, btw good job with the box, looks pretty cool.
You all talking about retirement makes me think Im the youngest (about 45), so retirement for my generation won't exist (at least for me) but I should start thinking in which country to get retired, not Russia I tell you, Mike, I heard HK is a good place for that, isn't it? Im pretty sure HK will be my next destination so be ready for me XD
Phil, keep going to your office every week, they will get use to your visits long way before they think why he keeps coming?
Don't forget to bring them some sweet as 'bribes'
For myself, bad week indeed, everything I tried failed, Ikoflex front lens destroyed by dog, new bellows for Isolette with more holes than the original one, Autocord level ring broken (Yes James, sorry) due excess of tighten when screwing it back to helicoid (after cleaning and new artic grease for Moscow weather) and when I took back the 2,8cm tessar from service, I wanted to open and clean again the lenses I discovered it broken in one edge, the guy said he checked and everything was fine when it closed it.
So better I stop doing anything and I will wait something good happens and I will start over
So for Ikoflex I have already a front lens, bellows I will buy film change bag and I will do them myself, Autocord focus leveller I already measured it and I will go to a 3D company to make a metal version of them, lets see how much will it be. About the 2,8cm tessar, I need to shoot with it and see how big is the distortion whatever I will find out. But no fix on this. Lets see if March comes this way of it was just a bad week.
