Film Advance Details for Homemade Camera

Here are some details for the film advance for a 6x17 film camera I made. Thought this might give camera builders some ideas. Works pretty good for me.


The length of the tube can be determined from the rest of the camera design. The advance is pulled up by the knob to remove the roller. I use a bit of dowel for the bottom roller guide. Questions and comments are welcome.
