    Out of curiosity, are you currently using a flat lensboard or does it have a 'cone" extention on it?

    I think everyone is assuming you are allready using the flat.. but you know what they say about assumptions.
    Go not to the elves for counsel, for they will say both yes and no.

    I have a blue 23C and Nikkor 1:2.8 and have no difficulty focusing 11x14 images. The label on the box reads "#8023 Lensboard with Pilot Light for El Nikkor and Componar 3.5 Lenses".

    I've come up with two conclusions:

    1 - There's no reason why I shouldn't be able to focus with my standard lens board. I must be a millimeter or two off for whatever reason.
    2 - A recessed lens board is an acceptable solution - I installed the lens on an 8022 board and I achieved focus even at maximum height.
