I have a barrel Kodak Anastigmat f4.5 8 1/2" lens without mounting flange that is pristine, huge, and shuterless. I decided to use it with my new Anniversary Speed Graphic, but since it is so heavy the lack of mounting flange put a damper on the plan. I figured out a safe, easy way to mount it today, and have done so. Here's what I did:
1) get a package of glazing points and some small wood screws
2) drill pilot holes on the diagonals of your wooden lensboard, about 1/8" from the lens hole. Bend the point of the glazing points so they go into the hole while screwed to the edge. Bend the tip back up.
3) screw the glazing points and screw the lens onto the lensboard, using the sharp bent tip of the glazing points as the thread!
Hopefully this will be useful to all of you cheap collectors of assorted stuff like me...
