    Hello Everyone, I am having quite amount of difficulty locating a graflok 4x5 back (plus ground glass of course) for a very custom Polaroid conversion and was wondering if anyone here had a spare one they would be willing to sell me. The only limitation would be if it was a revolving back which I don't think would be useful (too thick). The more compact the better, but a graflex graflok back would be ok too. Anyone? Anyone? You would have my undying gratitude of course. Feel free to reply here or email me at artist@patrickjames.net

    Thank you,

    Patrick James

    These actually come up quite often on the auction site, I won't pay the price they are tyring to get, but again, they are not that uncommon.

    If you need glass, I am sure I can supply that for you.

    Hey everyone- I have tried to get one on ebay but they keep getting ridiculously high bids, and it is not that I am unwilling to pay alot for one, but I keep getting outbid even though I am using esnipe. $125 for a cambo? That was grungy? I think you get my point. I was hoping that someone here would have one to eliminate the uncertainty of the auction sites.

    These guys bought out graflex, and still have about 120 backs. I am sure they are not cheap, but they are new. Ask for Jim Sr.

    I have an Industrail Poloroid Camera body, complete with a graflock back, that I could part with. It will not bolt onto a Speed, which is what I bought it for, PM me if you are interested.
