    B&L 5x8 Zeiss Tessar 1b, where to get mounting flange?

    I have a super-clean Bausch&Lomb Zeiss-Tessar 1b 5x8 barrel lens, that came off a 5x8 Graflex. It does f/32 and appears to be a 210mm. I want to mount it to a 4x4 lens board for my 5x7 but can't seem to find a mount flange. It will look something like this

    My lens is almost identical to that one but is a 5x8. The glass elements are super-clean and the whole thing was serviced before I bought it.

    The lens definitely covers 5x7 I've freelensed it in front of the ground glass and the image it makes is nothing short of glorious.

    SK Grimes is the usual recommendation.
    Not cheap though.

    I paid 50 for the lens if I can find the flange I'd be willing to pony up to use it properly.

    It's a great piece of glass.

    You might try Jim Galli, he does a lot with older lenses & stuff.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    Can you take a measurement of the outside threads on the lens? One of us may have an old flange that will work for you.
