    A multipurpose pocket tool. Yes I know they make hundreds of them but I want one with an ev light meter in the handle. Maybe even a tube like a thermometer running up it so I could see it better.

    something like those press on picture frame hooks but instead of the hook a tripod nut. So that I can attach tripods to my junk cameras.

    I've seen these before. I inherited a few pinhole cameras with stick on tripod sockets. You could super glue a 1/4" thread nut to the bottom of the camera.

    and god knows I have the superglue lol.... Im working today on putting a 4x5 back on a polaroid 250. I going to save the rangefinder this time by having all the excess hang down. That will make it hang about 3 inches below the camera. Im trying to figure out how to get it on a tripod since it will be mostly timed esposures with paper negs.

    Im thinking 1x2 for the bottom with a hole drilled in it for the the trypod bolt replaced by a 3 1/4 or so bolt. Seems about the easiest way to me. Problem is going to be getting a bolt that long into the tripod platform... I might just woodscrew a 1x2 onto an old tripod and fix this camera permenantly to it. I would really like to have a wooden tripod to put it on permenantly but thats too expensive to butcher. You wouldn't happen to know who to make one would you. I mean real easy and real rough looking in the end. Im no carpernter or anything else really.

    I am so stupid.... I have a dozen old fiber based kodak cameras I can cut the tripod screw and retainer from, then screw the whole cut piece onto the pinhole I have with no tripod hole. My stupidity amazes even me.

    I bet only a few of you know that the newer plastic film holders are thinner than the old wooden ones. I made a spacer to slide into the back on top of the holder to tighten it up. And since im the only one using this kind of back I doubt anyone will make any, even.
