    WTB: lens board for a 4x5 Crown Graphic drilled for a copal #1 shutter

    Hi guys, anyone has a spare lensboard that fits the Crown Graphic. Dims 94 mm x 94mm with a copal #1 hole. Metal or wood, material needs to hold a 210 mm Caltar shutter.
    I looked on the Evilbay for the last week or so with no luck. I'm in Ontario, Canada.
    Thanks
    Mihai Costea

    I swapped some stuff for an ancient SG and with it came a metal SG panel with a Nr. 1 hole in it

    The panel has rounded in edges and is 83mm outside width/height and has a folded rebate of 5mm

    I live in Australia, but it will easily fit into a padded envelope

    ebay seller heavystar always has them. Seems to be on holidays at the moment which is undoubtedly why you couldn't find any. I've bought a few Crown Graphic lens boards from them.

    I have two...One drilled and one blank.

    The drilled graphic board hole measures 1 1/4...It is a original graphic silver board... The blank is a after market black board...

    Both for $45. I will not seperate.

    John, thanks but 83 mm will not cover. I need 94mm.
    Michael, thanks for the tip. I will watch heavystar.
    John Cremati, thanks but the hole for copal #1 that I need is 1 5/8. I'm not handy and will not be able to enlarge an existing hole or drill a new one.

    Like others I get my boards from Heavystar, 2 new ones are about the same price as used older boards on ebay at times.

    They are very easy to file or drill out to whatever size you want.
