    The description says it all. I also have some film to trade if you would be into that. Send me a PM if you are looking to part with one of these.

    Good luck finding one! I have never seen a Copal 3 board for Sinar/Horseman for sale.

    Ebay has a bunch of them. A total of 64 are listed as of 4:30P PST.

    I usually get boards in the smaller sizes. Its a lot easier to make the hole bigger, than to make it smaller. Also, there were 2 or perhaps 3 different "Copal 3" sized shutters. I have a 60mm and 63mm and there is also a 65mm shutter that all say "Copal 3."

    The "Horseman/Sinar" board will, of course, take a #3 sized hole, but the 8x8cm Horseman boards won't.

    4 listed as boards for Sinar/Horseman, but photos show boards with Copal 0 or Copal 1 sized openings.

    Has anyone used one of these non sinar/horsman brand lens boards that ship from Hong Kong? I just want to be sure it will indeede fit my camera (8x10 Tachahara) and not end up being a flat paperweight.
