    Help with ID'ing a lensboard and a couple of lenses

    A colleague of mine has a couple of Wray lenses in lensboards I've not seen before. Can anyone help as to what these lensboards fit, and perhaps a clue as to what the lenses might have been used for?

    The 4" Supar lens looks like an enlarger lens, and has an iris, but the 184mm Lustrar doesn't, so I guess it's a process lens?
    Both have bigger threads than the usual M39 on enlargers.


    Any help would be appreciated

    They could be off a print head from a commercial lab, so not a conventional enlarger. Think Kenprint or similar, despite the "Ken" they were actually made by Ilford

    Come to think of it here's the prints off those "Digital" negative you made with that Nikon tank on the last Ilford factory tour

    I reckon I'll get a 20x24 ULF for next time. There wouldn't be any debate about what I was shooting with that!
