    WTB: Graflex (Crown / Speed) Size 1 Lens Board

    Want to buy a size 1 cut out lens board for a Graflex Crown Graphic, or a size 0 that I can cut myself.

    Or possible trade, I have a variety of lensboards available on my side from various purchases. Linhof style board (size 1), and a wista (size 1), a variety of very large B&J wooden boards..

    Thanks!

    I made my own for my speed graphic. I could post a photograph of it with specs. Its made of wood from a hobby shop and cut with a hand held jig saw. It's amazing how bad you can cut a circle and it still works great

    If this fails to yield any results, I'm going to take you up on specs for that! Feel free to share as well. :]

    Heavystar on Ebay sells brand new genuine Pacemaker (Speed/Crown) lens boards for less than $40 for 3, so making your own is pretty pointless when the real boards are so cheap.

    He normally has them listed in 3's as well as singly and many of us here have bought them and can highly recommend them. Opening up a Size 0 to 1 is simple with a file.

    So thats where people buy them. I had lost the link haha. I made my first one out of mattboard backed with gaffers tape. It worked great for over a year (and possibly would have lasted for much longer), and them I had a free weekend so I made one out of wood.
