I've always been a tinkerer, and looking through a gallery of old (~1890s) motion picture cameras, I got intrigued by the idea of building my own hand-crank camera.
I'm wondering if anyone on the boards could point me to some books with more detailed specs/blueprints for these classic cameras, or similar resources online?
I know it's an offbeat request, maybe a little (a lot) anachronistic, but I'd really appreciate a nudge in the right direction.
Thanks so much!
edit: here's a gallery I was looking at, if anyone's interested:
