    A bit of an update. I just pulled the trigger on the Gowland + 90 Grandagon deal I asked about a few weeks ago, and wanted to have a lensboard made for my one other lens. So if anyone has the specs for the lbs and a copal 0 hole, I'd be grateful. The camera is on its way, and the deal included some filmholders, dev tanks and film too. I just hope the lens cleans up nicely. LF here I come !!

    My 4x5" Gowland takes Linhof boards, but that's not the standard option. Just e-mail Peter, and order them from him. His prices are very reasonable. Info at www.petergowland.com.

    Is your Gowland a 4x5"? Standard 4x5 Gowlands use metal 4x4" lens board with sharp corners, 1/8" thick, and 2 notches that are 1/16" thick for the screws. Peter sells blank ones for $15 and $15 to drill a hole.
