[filmscanners] Re: Dust brush for Polaroid 4000]

Hi Don,

As I have emailed privately to you, I would also like to state publicly
that I really appreciate the time and effort you put into scanning and
photographing the brush from its many angles.  Very helpful information,
and admittedly, not how I had conceptualized the positioning and design
in my "mind's eye" from the word descriptions.

I will have to try to come up with some design that mimics the main
point of the Polaroid design.

I will also try to find out if any brushes are still to be had.  My
email to David Hemmingway hasn't yet been replied to, but that email
address was not current, so he may no longer be accessing that address.

Thanks again,
