Building a camera part 3

Today I spent some time on the field camera I am building.  Have mostly completed the woodwork, with just some trim planing and sanding to be done.  I have mounted the linear bearings on the base and attached the slide to the bearings,  this is the focus mechanism.  Mostly now it is just making a few brass pieces to hold it all together.

 

For those that are interested here is a photo of the unit held together with rubber bands.
