    Good Day Folks,

    We're happy announce that we are now stocking our own Pacemaker Graphic compatible lens boards!

    Unlike the original boards, which were made from stamped aluminum and powder coated, our boards are machined out of solid aluminum blocks, glass beaded, and black anodized. This allows for greater lens board rigidity and makes drilling holes and modifying the lens board fair easier. In addition to improving the material, we also incorporated the "bumps" into the thickness of the board. This creates a thicker board which eliminates the need for spacers when attaching some lens.

    Boards are available with a 1/2 pilot hole or pre-drilled for modern #0 and #1 shutters. We can also bore the boards out to specific sizes if required. Boards fit Crown Graphics, Speed Graphics, and Super Speed Graphics.

    And the prices are?

    Seriously, I am glad for the services you offer and I have heard many good things about you. But I always have difficulty navigating your website.

    They have lens boards for all types of cameras, not just Graphics.

    They have made me lens boards for my Carbon Infinity, which are otherwise almost impossible to find. The day before I received them, I came across several of them on ebay, though - so now I have enough.

    Except for the SKG logo there is no visible or practical difference, an impressively good job making a very rare and unusual lens board.
