BIOGRAPHY
I'm 49 married couple of grown kids and recently a new grandpa! I have been addicted to Canon FD cameras since I bought my first Canon AE-1 and a couple lenses in the fall of 76 while in college. I current whole a rather extensive collection ranging from a Black FTb to a Pair of T-90's and a Pair of F-1N's With around 36 lenses ranging from the 17mm f4.0 to the 500mm f4.5L And a couple apple boxes of accessories. I found Photo.net very soon after finding the internet. And have tried to be an active member of a number of the forums here. Like almost everyone the photo's posted here always seam to be way behind the curve of what I'm doing currently. As one of the moderators for the Canon FD forum I hope I can be of assistance with questions and helping to keep the forum clean and on track.

Walking Bridge over Silver Creek Vertical format. Taken from C St. Bridge Moring fog hides crap in background.

Gallon House Bridge (named for the Proabition era house that sold wine by the gallon near it. Only way to get this shot is from a truck (have to be 8' off ground) making a delievery to the Meal Worm Farm this shot was taken from their driveway and it is NOT open to the public. This is the best view of the bridge as the other side has many wires and signs in the way.

This lonely shooting bench is at the top of Briar Knob Rd. outside Silverton, OR.

In color and vertical can't tell which I like better yet.

This cabin is just outside the left side of the shooting bench photo's it dates to about 1920 when this area was being first settled and logged these 80-144 sqft cabins are very quickly disappearing or have been so modified as to make them no differentlooking then some garden shed as newer and fancier homes are being built in this area. A small part of the logging history of the area disappearing for ever.

Hard to get this pond just right as I had to shoot back over my shoulder to get an angle on it from the front seat of the dump truck. It's about 100yds down the road from the cabin.

Wahlster Grinder shown with Square wheel platen attachment

Wahlster Grinder shown with Square wheel platen attachment (other side) I made a number of these machines the basic machine sold for about $1300.00 motor options as well as included tooling could almost double that figure. They sold as fast as I could make them but when it got to the point of making grinders or knifes I decided I wanted to make knives so I stopped selling them. To the best of my knowledge all of them have been working full time since I sold them with only normal manitainance such as a bearing replaced or in one case a drive wheel had to be replaced as the customer screwed it up.

Wahlster Grinder shown with small wheel fixture this fixture and one's like it allow from 1/2" diameter grinding to 3" D. The fixture can be raised and lowered compared to the tool rest allowing a Fuller (blood groove) to be cut in as long as a 4ft blade perfectly accurate on both sides of a blade.

Same as above from a the other side showing the tool rest in place

Heavy stock removal 8"D Serated wheel used at surface speeds around 9600fpm to quickly AND I MEAN REALLY quickly remove material from the bar stock tool steels my knives were made from.

This is a small 1/3Hp Flat surface grinder I made up that operates both with the platen horizontal and vertical and in one of three speeds. This was used to make materials perfectly flat mostly for mating purposes. Like the bloster on a pocket knife to the liner for soldering.

Shown in the other position

This grinder is a highly modified factory made machine the only part remaining from the origional machine is the back stand idler and tension adjustment pulley and stand. The ortigional machine was ment ot only lay in a horizontal position. But since I flat ground my knives using a flat platten (see in the middle of the machine. I mounted the whole thing on a hing pivot. I then added the motor end tracking and mounted the grinding wheel on a HD water pump bearing to allow more working room origionally this would have been mounted directly to a 1/2 HP motor I changed power to a 1Hp motor and lenghtened the machine from being designed for a 48" long belt to use the knifemakers std. 72" belt

Shown in it's horizontal mode this was advantagous for shaping handle materials etc.

And a closeup of the front tracking and arbor assembly. The sheet metal gaurd on the motor is to keep the cooling fan from blowing the metal dust away from the catch can under the machine.

Arms made in development These are the vaious arms sets I made while deciding on a final design The ones that are incomplete had a flat head recessed screw holding the two halves together this proved as soon as made to be lacking in strenght so they weren't completed. The top two sets are single piece the others are two piece.

Bracket assembled 1 I'll do better white background photos later so as to show off the braket better. You acn easily see how having a short cord going from the HSA-3 to the Distributor would make the setup more compact. I have a little braket designed that would hold the distributor just above the HSA-3

Bracket assembled 2

Bracket assembled top view 3 The arms can range in angle from 180` oppisite of each other to about a 20` spread with the flashes almost in front of the lens.

Bracket assembled body vertical When the camera is mounted vertical the lens is on the same plane as horizontal all controls and functions are available in both mounting directions. there is almost no flex when mounted vertical certinly nothing that without direct pressure would allow the mount to move. The door release latch can easily be accessed through a hole in the center plate.

Bracket assembled body vertical straight on view. This view also shows the advantage a short cord would provide.

Bracket knocked down and compacted 1 This series of photo's shows possible packing methods the blue little pack shown is approx. 6.25" X 3.0" X 3.5" Many brand name little pouches can be used. I would also like to find a pouch that would hold the two 300TL's the polarizing filter holders I still have to design and an extra set of AA batteries. I'm looking at a filter holder that uses both the plastic sheet type filter and one that would mount an 82mm linear polarizing filter to allow better comtrol of the lights direction, when using the flash at angles

Completely packed with flashes What you see here is everything but body and lens (Ok the polarizing filters aren't here but they will fit in the blue pouch as well depending on which version I use. This all weighs 4lb 12 oz. Including a spare set of batteries.

Completely packed with flashes and ruler This shows just how small the setup can be packed and made protable. The idea is to be able to have this in the field when you find the great widflowers or little crawlly thing. Granted all up with all the multiflash adapters and cords the two little ball heads and everything It ain't light but easily managable.

Skunk Cabbage never looked so good wish this was on Velvia insead of a 4mp digital.

Number 2 found in the next drainage creek along the trail

And number three can't decide which crop I like. although these are all full frame I just zoomed in a little.

This is Three Sisters and broken top from the hwy between Sisters and Bend. This gives you a good idea of why the mountatin part of the trip sucked.

I shot these digital shots of Crack in the Ground on the trip back out. So they are pretty much backwards of what you would expect to see as you enter the Crack at the trail head.

This is Oregons Fort Rock the core of a volacnic eruption that happened in the middle of a huge lake that was once covering this part of Oregon. I removed a travel trailer and restrooms along with a couple of telephone poles to show the rock the way it looked when I first saw it 40 years ago before it was made into a park. This was shot from the road east of the town of Fort Rock.

Most likely shot at 28mm with her Tokina 28-70. This is a 1 hour print from the least of the two places in tow to have prints done. I will be going through her stuff and scanning the negs to make her some good prints.

Frenchie Falls this is the smallest waterfall named in the Park none of the guides have a photo as it is only appearent during high flow times. I have been waiting for this guy. About a 40 foot drop.

Audrey found this interesting Water droplet about .75" across being held suppended in a spiders web.

First clear view of South Falls 177' from the trail that leads both to the canyon floor and around behind the falls. I have seen a couple of amazing shots taken from this vantage point when the falls was nearly frozen. One photographer I know wore his golf shoes to make it up and down the trail. Said it was one of the scarest photo's he ever took!

A rather nice line of Shelf Fungi right along the trail. Shot these at a couple of different color balances but I think this one looks the most life like. The others a bit warm.

This is the shot I waited and waited for the digital is about equal to a 38mm lens I was trying for a wider shot with my 24mm f2.0 which of course made the area I needed free of gobbers much larger. As you can see the little blobs of bright color ruin the shot. Sure in the digital I can clone then out but the slides the slide. So I'll just head up there on a nice weekday morning sometime soon. We are bound to miss a day or two of work this week. And the Falls are only 12 miles from home.

JP's Big blue things I didn't catch what they were.

Mike going through some albums that were traded around. Since I didn't really have anything to trade Frogtoes took pitty on me and gifted me a few he had dups of. So I'll have to come up with something to pay back the favor next time.

Watch for future details !!!!!!

Scott and Mark B. working on the tweeter there seams to be some confusion!

This is where the antenna lead comes into the alcove I use a 1/2" PVC tubing as conduit and can hide it behind the carpet on the stairs The wife is happy about that.

Cable detail these are the interconnects for my SR-303 to Tape 1 on my SA-9100 they are approx. 21" long

Plug detail. I'm using $1.15 each gold plated, brass bodied RCA's bought at the local ACE hardware store they have to be drilled out to 5/16" to fit over the Mini 8 size Cable (Carol C-1108)and Black nylon mesh covering (abrasion resistance and looks) The labels are made in a publishing program and printed on small address labels two to the label. A couple layers of colored electrical tape color codes the RIGHT/LEFT cables. A 3/8" Clear Heat shrink tube is over all of it sealing it.

Rear view showing how the cables are laid out. with restricted clearance due to the rack being in a pocket in the wall cables can't bunch up and there are just to many of them to hang every which way. All of the power cables will be upgraded in the next couple of days as I am moving to using a Monster Products PowerCenter and will be upgrading the way power is delivered to the various units. I also still have a second set of speaker wires to run these will be inside the clear tubing sean bundled with the other speaker cables (twisted red and black) This is a composite of two photo's take and stictched together to help avid the weird perspective trying to get a photo of something like this can cause. that is why if you look close you can see some artifacts in the image.

A close up of the back of the amp and EQ showing the mass of cables involved with connecting so many units together. The two cables that exit the photo in the top right corner go to a Junction block on the side of the rack. This is to allow me a way to plug in and unplug the preamp and those units it controls when pulling the rack out of the pocket it rests in.

Close up of the right angle plugs and extensions that had to be used since the EQ sits so deep into the pocket as to kink the cables if normal RCA's were used. The Clear Heat tubing adds a little extra protection from touching the PCA next door. As does the Red fiber board insulation show shoved between the Right angle extensions. The clear tube in this photo is going to have a second set of speaker wires runing through it one day.

This is a side view of the connections showing how compact to the back of the rack everything sits. when pushed in place the cables end up touching the back wall of the pocket. Which is one reason I decided to use the nylon mesh as an added protection layer for the cables. From the edge of the Oak there is less then 2.5" of clearance to the back wall.

Front view of where I ended up finding room for the PowerCenter by moving the CD players up slightly and not having the little drawer I was planning at the bottom of the rack. I'll have one with the lights on later

A detailed view of the front of the rack I still have the new molding to make. I also have to finish the antivibration feet for the CD players and then figure out how to hold them in place.

Detail showing the outlet on the right side that the Laptop and digital server stuff will plug into. The heavy cord is the Main PowerCenter cord and will extend out from under the unit to reach an outlet under the book selfe next to the rack pocket. For now I'm just running an extension cord from the shop tool circiut to the rack through the cooling vent hole. Not real pretty but it supplies the PowerCenter with power wired properly.

Detail of the back of the units showing all the little extension cords plugged in. the cords in this are will end up inside of a grounded Sheet metal shroud to help reduce an interferance from geting to the speaker cables. I'ma slo going to run the speaker cables inside a corrigated metal grounded conduit for it's last 18" to reduce the interferance as much as possible.

Detail showing how the extension cords wrap around the side of the rack to go to the Outlets that the TV DVD VCR Preamp and Cable box will all plug into. There is also a hi power outlet here for future Pair of MONO blocks I want to build that will end up on the shelf above the main rack. All of the cables are 14/3 stranded conductor simular to very high quality extension cords. The outlets are from the computer room in the Albettsons grociery store the wife works in. they remodeled and the wife draged home a 500 lb cabinet with drawers and formica counter tops and four of these very high quality GFI protected outlets. The three shown here have all been split so one cord goes to each outlet. With a common safety ground. I have since this photo recut Ivory phenolic cover plated to cover all the outlets.

Overall view of the rear of the PowerCenter before installing the sheet metal grounded shield over top of the power cords and the Metal Flex conduit over the speaker cables.

Overall rear view with new power cables. I still have to replace the power cables on the small processors and the tuner (which since I'm getting a second TX-9100 I'll wait until I know which I want to keep) I also have some work to figure out a ground loop in my antenna and the Dynamic range enhancer. A side benifit of this is the holes that were cut to allow units not in the rack to be plugged into the PowerCenter. You might also notic little green caps on some of my unused RCA's these are from the hareware store sold as thread covers the 5/16" size fit's the Female RCA's quite well. More later

OK here's the bottom of the rack finished Or at least the molding is finished

This is the way the system looks from the sweet spot on the corner of the couch.
