here are some lists
brass from, car heater radiators,light switch faceplates, an exsecutive toy , part of a lens,some pipe ,a decorative plate and some clock parts.
some nuts and bolts
a lens mount
lead tin solder.
fine sand paper
polish wadding and paste
a lazer cutter would have been nice to get things accurate but i havnt got one so it wont be accurate.
blow torches large and small
dremmel with cut off disks and sand drums
decorative face plates£8 (b&q dont sell sheet brass)
Step 1: Get Something Shiney
notes on soldering
clean both pieces so there shiney bare metal apply flux where you want to solder,
big awkward shape?theres nothing stopping you from soldering part of the connection then the other end then joining it up. heat it and add solder till it flows in to the gap.
other times you might want to patch a hole in prevoius solder use less heat so its soft and push it into shape with a stick or something.try not to overheat so it all goes liquid and falls to bits.
put thin little bits of material onto big thick bits of material , this stops your previous work from self destructing :-)
the fumes are toxic
Step 2: Is It Still a Slit Scan Style
luckily my m42 lens mount was a brass like material under a chrome/stainless finish not all metals like to stick together,i attached it to the part of a lens screw.(a piece from inside a lens i broke ages ago)
if there are materials that dont want to stick together (so i found with the stainless steel rods)build the solder up around it so it just gets in the way of it falling off.
Step 3: Blender Style Film Plate Installd
getting the film drive gear to run smooth with the rotating base worked briefly then insisted on jamming going wonkey and genrally being a pain in the backside
so i ditched the spinny bit of tyhe idea, and went fore something more conventional.
Step 4: So a Shutter It Is
Step 5: The Film Plane
Step 6: Manual Wind Oh Go on Then
mirror plates bent and a butterfly nut hold the back on. bolts lock the spools in place on the drive pegs
Step 7: Clean It Up
an angle grinder is a bit excessive but it it is also quick;
. made something fitting to use as the shutter pulls. chuck some paint on. and i put some felt on the shutter to make it light proof when shut.
