    I prefer Schneider, Rodenstock or Nikkor. For 6X9 format. Needs to be for 39mm lens board. If you have one of these available, please PM me.
    Thanks,
    Gerry

    I think I have an extra Componon in nice shape. I'm not sure if I have an extra 39mm adapter for it though. What enlarger is it going on? Maybe I have a board.

    Mark,
    By 39mm adapter, do you mean the retaining ring? It is going on a Beseler 23C2.

    Schneider lens used to have smaller diameters than 39mm, but had an adapter available that took them up to 39mm. I don't think I have an adapter to spare, but will see if I have a board and retaining ring.

    You don't have anything interesting to trade do you?

    Mark,
    What Schneider lens do you have? I have a 50/2.8 Componon-S that is 39mm. As far as trade, the only thing that comes to mind is a Tokina ATX 28-85 Minolta MD mount. It is as new.

    No luck finding an adapter or retainer (did find a board). Sorry. But to answer your question, mine is a 105 Componon. I didn't realize that it is on a nice threaded board for my Durst enlarger now. I have two lens about that focal length, so figured one was a spare, but they are mounted on different enlargers so I guess it makes sense to keep them both for the occasional situations where I need the focal length.

    Sorry for the false positive. Good luck with your quest.

    I have a new (old Stock) Wollensak 90, might even have the correct lensboard for a Bessy 23c. I have one on my ProLab 4x5, it was designed for 6x9 coverage, sharp in the corners.

    Glad you stuck with it. I use the 105mm for 6x7 and it works great!
