    Hey Gustavo,

    I have a few uncut originals at home . I don't have all the dimensions with me right now but, the main dimension is 5-1/4 inches square. Let me know if you need more details.

    My 8x10 Korona had a B&J lensboard in it when I bought it. It was 6x6inches with a thin 1/4 in flange cut into it, thinner than the Korona needed. The picture shows the relative dimensions, the Korona board was 3/8ths inch thick. I don't know if the 5x7 board is any smaller but bet that the flange is pretty much the same.

    Can't speak for the 5x7's, but I know the 4x5's came with different lensboards. Mine's 5-1/4" square, but I remember hearing of two other sizes for 4x5's.

    Maybe the model makes a difference?

    My grey 5x7 B&J flatbed uses 5.25 lensboards. My 5x7 B&J Saturn monorail uses 4" lensboards.

    Upon reading Jim's post i.e. Saturn, I rechecked my B and J and it is an Orbit...it is monorail and is a 100 mm (4 inch board) so there must have been a series of cameras with planetary names?
