    I'm watching that one too....good luck.

    It looks like this one is fitted with some sort of adapter board...perhaps to allow one to use a standard size - maybe Toyo field or Graphic?

    According to my 1959 B&J Catalog it should take a 5 1/4" lens board. That adapter may be for the 3 5/8 metal speed graphic type boards or it may be 4X4. There's definitely an adapter there though.

    I don't know about that one, but my B&J monorail (Orbit) and my B&J press both take 4" boards. Some of the wood ones are even stamped "Burke and James".

    Do you really want another eBay purchase in the mail before you get to trade your car in on an 8x10?

    LOL....Well, when it was at $78 it was a no-brainer...I see it went for over $200. Far more than I was willing to go.
