    Yeah, the 029 works with all Manfrotto tripods.

    Great, this is such a wonderful solution, thank you..!

    ...now I need to make an Anniversary Speed Graphic to Toyo View adapter, or at least find a decent cheap normal lens.

    Good to go, I say? Not really - I'm somewhat anxious about my tripod - it's the typical Manfrotto 055XPROB with the three way head, and while it surely can hold the camera weight, everything I touch results in vibrations that shake the whole assembly. Can I do anything to improve the tripod's stability or do I need to get a bigger one?

    That's Excellent Theo !
    More bang for the buck with an Omega View.
    And you have lots of money left over for Film,
    and other Goodies !

They just pop nicely into and out of place without any fiddling. However, when it gets down to it, I don't find any practical difference between the different ways of changing orientation unless shooting hand held. If I have time to set up a tripod or studio stand, I have 10 seconds to turn the glass the other way.
    Intellectually I agree, but emotionally I beg to differ for different reasons. My eyes once watched my hands fumble a back, and as it tumbled toward the ground the GG shattered as the back tried grabbing onto the tripod handle to save itself from the fall. My brain still hurts and my eyes still cry when thinking about that event. Note: this situation never happened with a revolving back camera.

    ...so I bought the Omega, then I got a Schneider Xenar 150mm/f5.6 (Copal #0) to get me going, and I also got a no-name Copal #0 lensboard.

    ...now I try to fit the Xenar on the lensboard, and I can't get the retaining ring all the way down to make the lens secure on the board, because there's a small screw sticking out in on the back on the lens... is this normal? am I supposed to do something with this screw? should I unscrew it or make a small hole for it on the lensboard?

    If I remember correctly, the screw is for securing the lens to a lensboard. Remove it (don't lose it!) and just screw the retaining ring all the way down. That'll work fine, too.
