    So I have a Nikkor 180mm f/5.6 and I'm trying to figure out what lens board it needs so I can mount it onto my Sinar F. Any help with this?

    Look at the shutter to see if it says something like Copal No. 1. If so, that would be the size of lens board to get.

    Yep, it has a Copal 1 shutter.

    That's all you need to know. Just find a Copal 1 board and you'll be laughing like a fat spider in the sun.
