Hi all --

I'm looking for some advice on building a rackover mount for my bell and howell 240ee. Is it really just as simple as building a slide so the taking lens and the viewfinder can swap places, or am I looking at a lot more work?

Thanks for your help.

No, that's pretty much it. I built one for my 220EE, it works pretty well.

I pretty much just modified my faceplate, using a pair of small rails to replace my screws. The entire faceplate slides sideways, to bring it up to the ground glass.

I rediscovered this old post while searching for something else.

Nate -- if you still have the modified unit, could you please post a picture or email one to me? I'm interested to see how you did this.

Thanks,

Aaron
