    Looking for a Graflok back, with or without the glass similar to the one shown below. An MPP back would be great as it would match up with some of the other parts I have. Will consider other makes.

    this is the glass insert that is clipped into the graflok back, not the whole back. This is removed if you are, for example, going to put a roll holder on the camera via the graflok back.

    Is this all you need?

    Yes, just the frame that clips in is needed - Will be machining an adaptor plate to mate with the camera body.

    How about an entire Toyo View 4x5 rotating back? It'll save some machining and... it rotates.

    Too big and too heavy. I had seen the ebay ads, and once shipping+import fees are included, they become way too expensive. Would still have to machine an adaptor plate as I don't have space for a rotating back.

    Do you want 9x12cm or 4x5 inch?

    Have been advised that the correct name of the part I'm looking for is a "Focusing panel for a Graflok back" (thanks Bob) - Needs to be for 5x4 format.
