    WTB/WTT: for lens boards

    Hi all,

    If anyone has a Linhof Technika style lens board (96x99mm) with a Copal #1 hole (42mm) that they are looking to offload, I'm looking for one.
    Also, if you have a lens board with an 80mm hole in it, in a Graphic/Sinar/Technika lens boards (either three will do).
    It's for a fun little project, so I don't need them pristine—janky is fine, as long as they're just light tight.

    Thanks in advance!

    i have a Sinar board with a 70mm hole.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    I don't have a way (or know anyone near me who has a drill press) to make a 80mm hole.

    A local machine shop can usually bore a hole for $10 to $20 depending on the shop.

    You can cut a rough lens board with a dremel and sand it smooth. Just mark out the correct diameter for the shutter and you can drill holes inside your marked circle and then cut it out.

    I have a Copal #1 board (Horseman). I also have some blank square boards about the size of the Technika/Horseman board that I can throw in with it. You can see if will work. Send me a PM and we can come up with a good price.

    Edit: I just realized I have a 4 inch square wooden board with a 80mm hole.

    Thanks, folks! I'm good with the second lens board (the one with an 80mm hole), and the Technika Copal #1 is pending.
