    Hi guys I am in need of some HD detailed pics of the bulb clamp of (if possible) an original GRAFLEX Im going to make a new GRAFLEX replica in stainless steel this time.I made a Luke ANH replica before but i wasnt satisfied with de emitter part at all.
    This time I want to replicate it the best I can, so I need pics of the clamp complete separated i mean every piece of it.Yes, I know it is very rare that some of you have the clamp completeley dismantled but I had to ask anyway.

    Greetings!!!

    Hi I´ve been without internet sorry, I made a mold with an iron tube external to the brass copper lets say 38 mm internal diameter and an iron rod with the internal diameter of the brass/stainless steel tube, in the part of the bottom you have to get rid of a part of the brass tube thickness lets say 3 mm and 0,40 MM of the total thicknes and cut a brass circle of the interior diameter of the tube then you have to put this brass sheet in the interior and then fold with a hammer the thinner part where you retired the excess of material over the rounded brass sheet.
    Sorry I hope this help I would make a drawing to explain better but now I have no time ... any other question pls contact me again good luck!!

    Ok, started on the MPP pix. The chrome finish is more unforgiving than the flatter Graflex nickel, but I'll do what I can. New thread here and album here.

    Enjoy.
