    I'm looking for a Toyo metal board (110mm size for a 45CF), with a Copal#1 (42mm) hole. Payment by Paypal.

    Thanks,
    Richard

    I might have one at home, came on a lens and didn't need the board.
    Does it look like this one?.
    I'm pretty sure that's what I've got, just gotta measure the hole size in 5 hours when I get home.
    Shipping aus->us is $15 (I'll presume it's less than 500g). How about $30 all up? (presuming it's the right one)

    I thought Australian shipping was insane? How can it only be $15? I'm not doubting your honesty (he's a good guy OP) just curious. And yes that's the 110mm board.

    The auspost website is hard to navigate (i prefer to just walk into a shop and buy one, but they shut the shop near my work), but I found the calculator that gives a 500g airmail padded envelope as $14.10 (which is actually only US$12.40, dollar must have dropped again).
    It's the US post that's expensive, I rarely get anything bigger than a CD for less than $30US, minimum anything from adorama/B+H is about $60 so I make it worth my while and buy lots at a time.

    Meanwhile, back to the board, I measured mine and it's a #0 size, so no good for you anyway (unless you've got a big metal drill bit).

    Thanks! Hope I can visit there someday with lots of Velvia50 in 4x5 and have a time of it all in the outback! If I could make dreams reality this would be one of my biggest

    Found one over on LFPF.

    USPS used to have pretty reasonable rates compared to Australia, but raised them substantially in the past year or so. The flat rate envelope to my son in Melbourne went from $12.95 to $23.95, I think it is now. The priority package rates also went up by a huge amount.

    Most people probably don't think about it, but the country's postal service where the package is mailed gets to keep all the money you pay, so I'm sure this was an attempt for USPS to help dig itself out of billions of dollars in annual losses.
