    4X5 speed Graphic

    I'm sorry in advance, This is most probably here somewhere.

    I wish to make my own boards for my 4X5 Speed Graphic, Does anyone have a diagram of the board with sizes please.
    Thanks Pat

    It depends on which model speed you have, they take different boards. The anniversary is the easiest to make.

    The anniversary takes 4x4 wooden boards - easily made with a saw, router and rabbeting bit. The pacemaker uses sheet metal boards with a formed lip on the back and small raised bumps top and bottom on the front. For those, your best bet is probably an eBay seller named heavystar. I buy his undrilled ones and cut holes as needed using a drill press.

    I make them with fewer tools by using 1/8 inch baltic plywood, cut the two parts - the bigger square and the littler square, then gluing the two parts together with wood glue. I use a hand-powered jigsaw, a drill to start the blade on the lens hole, and a piece of sanding paper to smooth the sides. Takes about 20 minutes.

    Just bought an Anniversary model off of Whiteymorange, and he included four he made himself, those look incredibly easy. Just a 4x4" board with a hole. One of them has the indentation, the others dont, Quite frankly dont think its necessary.

    I'll be quite if you'll be quiet. I just told my wife that some guy on the internet told me that I need a router... and a new lens too.

    As long as my name came up, tell the wife that some guy told you to buy a new car and some more tools while you're at it... but don't tell her it was me.
