    So you always pay for the Quality.
    Actually, on checking my 4 Nowak boards, I find three are an excellent fit and one is a LITTLE undersize, so maybe he does have a bad day every now and again. My Nowak boards have a center block a few millimeters high which fits into the camera throat - the two original Norma boards I have (olive green finish) do not have this, they are totally flat apart from an outside flange. I think Nowak is worth using, particularly for custom-sized holes, since without machine tools cutting a hole with a handsaw and finishing it with a file is more hard work than I'm looking for!

    Everybody,

    Jim McDonough was the first to contact me regarding my Sinar board, so it will go to him. Thanks for your interest. I only wish I had more to give away!

    Mike
