    Gustavo,

    The actual* dimensions of the B&J lens boards for the commercial view cameras shown above are as follows...

    overall:
    5-3/16" W, 5-3/16" H, 3/8" T

    the lens board is shaped like two boxes stacked one on top of the other.

    The big box is:
    5-3/16" W, 5-3/16" H, 3/16" T

    the little box is:
    4-3/4" W, 4-3/4" H, 3/16" T




    the bottom edge of the big box has a slight bevel in it - to make it easier to fit in the front of the camera.

    Does this make any sense at all?



    * These are the actual dimensions that I measured. The nominal dimensions, printed on the OEM box are 5-1/4inches by 5-1/4inches.

    Dave, I don't know much about the B&J line but, they seem to me to have been a little casual about their names. From what I've been able to gleen from on line sources, their monorail line appears to have been comprised of the following camera names: Orbit, Saturn and Grover (monorail is hexagonal in cross section).

    Mr Galli has some old B&J catalogs. Perhaps, he can elaborate.
