    Speed Graphic lens boards

    Anyone know which lensboards will fit a Speed Graphic 4x5? Are there any others in the graflex (or any other) family that will fit, besides the ones specifically for the Speed?
    Thanks,
    Steve

    For Pacemaker Speed Graphics, the 2x3, 3x4 and 4x5 cameras all have metal lens boards and each size camera uses a size specific to the format.

    For Anniversary Speed Graphic and older cameras, a wood lens board is employed. The 'A' size is the most common if I remember correctly.

    My pre-Anniversary 4x5 Speed Graphic uses a C size board. It is 4x4 inches.

    The 4x5 Anny takes a "C" board.

    The older Speeds use a wooden lensboard. I bought a piece of 1/4" birch plywood at the hobbyshop, (you can also find it at Michael's) and cut it with a table saw. I made the light trap by cutting in 1/4 inch with the saw. For five bucks I was able to make three lensboards. Flat black paint finished up the job.
