    A recessed board probably is not sufficient, even with the top rail in the retracted position and the front standard as far back as it goes without falling off. You will very likely need the Wideangle Focusing Device, which takes a Tech 23 lensboard. A 72mm lens is probably as short as you can go with a recessed lensboard on the regular focusing rail.

    I use mine on a Tech IV without a recessed lensboard. A bit tricky but doable.

    One thing I've done with lenses that are too short for the main rail or even with the Wideangle Focusing Device is just to push the standard back into the box and focus by sliding the standard back and forth to focus, which is one of the tricky but doable options.

    Thanks David & Eric. I have received the lens, it is tiny, size 00 shutter, which is too small for the size 0 recessed board that I have. I will get our local machinist to adapt it, and try the lens back in the "box" as David has suggested. I jury rigged it to a board and tried it on my Kardon Colour, it focuses down to about 10 feet with the bellows completely collapsed.
    One problem that I have is there is no facility to open the shutter, and no "T" setting either, which is going to be difficult. I could have used "B" with a locking cable release but can't see a place for this to go.

    Usually there should be a cable release socket, as in Ian's photo, but I have seen ultrawide lenses mounted on lensboards where there is an L-shaped cable release fitting on the lensboard with a metal plunger that presses the lever on the shutter. If your shutter doesn't have a cable release socket, it is possible that it was designed to be mounted in this way.

    Mine was fitted on a baby Linhof board like that when I bought it, a cable release pushing a metal plunger that tripped the normal shutter release. It also had the cable release socket.

    I need to make an adaptor to do similar as I have a Compur Rapid 0 with no cable release socket & no T setting.

    Thanks for your efforts. There is no sign whatsoever of a cable release socket. Just a flash nipple and a green lever that turned out to be a self timer! I have one of those L shaped releases for my 90mm Grandagon.

    I had to do the same thing on a well worn #00 Compur my 65 SA came in, some digging around and a few minutes of time with some #0 screws allowed me to do essentially the same thing. The shutter mine came in had the cable release area torn out, so no hope of a "proper" fix.

    Tony, you need something like this.
