    PEACEMAKER SPEED GRAPHIC LENSBOARDS KIT

    Hi there!

    I decided to buy a SA 75 MM for my peacemaker speed graphic but I need a complete set of lensboards 'cause I'm not sure at all which copal I got now (the rear ring is REALLY TIGHT so I even can not measure the hole I got now - optar 135 mm f4.5 onboard -)...
    I saw heavystar guy got no items in his ebayshop anymore so do you know where I could find speed graphic lensboards in europe or even in USA for a fair price?

    thanx so much!

    The SA 75mm f8 (& f5.6) fit a Copal/Compur #O lens board.

    Heavystar in the US sells boards new at very reasonable prices via his ebay, but he's away until the end of this month (28th) which is why he has no listings.

    Yep, I saw the vacation message but who knows if he still got something for me...
    so this could do the trick, right?

    Sure I do not need a recessed board? I saw this lens is much bigger than the old optar I got mounted on it right now...
    What is a reasonable reference price for this lensboard Ian? thanx!!

    That's actually a Super Graphic lens board but it'll fit just the same, but don't bid too high on it

    I've used my 75mm SA on a normal board (one of the Heavystar ones). Heavystar always almost always has new Pacemaker lens boards so either wait a couple of weeks or keep an eye on Ebay, but don't pay too much - anything 20 euros and over is too expensive, I bought 3 new boards for under $40.

    I bought an undrilled Pacemaker board for US$20 a month ago on ebay. Very nice but I wouldn't pay more than that. Most of the ones I've seen there are way over priced or the wrong sized hole. I also will check out heavystar when he gets back. Thanks for the info.

    plus, I respect you for trying to communicate with us in our language. Your English is much better than my Italian, but not perfect.

    Peacemaker is a nickname of the .45 caliber single-action Colt revolver. Ammo is a short way of saying ammunition.

    Your camera is a Pacemaker Graphic. Graflex Inc., predecessors, and successors gave their products names that are hard for native speakers of English to use correctly.

    Hi,

    Will the 75mm lens be able to focus on infinity on that camera?

    "Pacemaker" is a compound word for someone/something that "sets the pace." "Pace" like the pace car in an auto race. A "Peacemaker" is an old revolver in the U.S. "Ammo" = slang for ammunition, i.e. bullets in this case.

    English is a terribly hard language. Congratulations on learning it.

    Try www.KEH.com for lens boards too. Sometimes you can find a deal there.
