    5x7 Linhof Lensboard Help Please!!

    I recently picked up a 5x7 Linhof IV Technica on Ebay. Originally when I made the purchase I was promised 2 lensboards. The seller after the auction could not find the lensboards so now I am sort of scrambling trying to find some. I have a few questions hopefully the knowledgable people of APUG can give me some advice.

    1) Any ideas where I can find 5x7 lensboards for the linhof?
    2) Read that the Linhof III 4x5 lenboards are the same size. Will they work with my camera? Looked for those on ebay with no results also, where can I get them?
    3) Been reading a lot about an adaptor board that will allow you to you to mount a 4x5 linhof board on a 5x7 camera, anyone know where I can get one of those?

    Thanks very much any responses are appreciated. Gerry

    Might be quicker to find some 1/8" board and take to it. Or try someone like KEH, see if they have something.
    Thank you.

    The 5x7 lensboards come up from time to time on Ebay. I bought a couple in the space of a month.

    They’re pretty simple, and any competent machine shop could easily make a few. No need to pay for specialized work, such as SK Grimes (although they do excellent work).

    I don’t use the 5x7 boards anymore, because I had SK Grimes make an adapter so that I can use the standard 4x5 boards. It makes life much easier. So I have two 5x7 Technika boards in size 1 (one black crinkle and one silver), if you’re interested.

    Big bucks, but you are a linhof shooter after all.
