    I had the same problem with my 11x14 B&J. I bought a junker 5x7 B&J Rembrandt portrait camera and scavenged the Packard shutter and tailboard bed from it. The dimensions and gearing were the same. There is one currently on Ebay (#120188251349) if you want to see what they look like.

    Just a thought. You "can" make an extension rail without the rack, just cut a groove where the teeth of the pinion will run. Cut it deep enough in your extension rail so that the teeth don't touch anything. Then you can manually move your camera standard back to the position you want, and then clamp it down someway. (Spring clamp?) As long as you have one standard (front or back, your choice) running on the rack and pinion, you can do the fine focusing.
