Redoing Light Traps with Mohair by Nokton48, on Flickr

Tonight I have been working on restoring these RADA 6.5x9cm Plate Holders. The light traps were completely gone in all of these, so I cut a paper pattern, and cut cardboard, and strips of Mohair, to restore the light trapping. Tomorrow I will contact cement the trappings into the holders, and they will be ready to load with dry plates. And I need to develop my first set of 6.5x9cm test exposures. Will be posting them soon. Having a decent amount of usuable holders is really important to me.

Also I am ordering two boxes of the ASA 25 "Speed Plates" in 6.5x9cm for testing.
