using enlarger lens in a shutter. : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Schnieder makes a nice adapter ring that goes from 39mm to a Copal 0 thread (available thru Calumet) so you can use all your 39mm enlarger lens on a Copal O shutter. I have used it with my Rodenstock 150mm APO Gerogan lens with some success, however I have found a 210 APO Gerogan which appears to have a larger 49.5mm mount. Any suggestions for mounting this on a standard lensboard or even better in a shutter? I guess S Grimes could make something up but any other suggestions would help. Thanks.

That's not a standard shutter size; the next largest shutter size is a #3 at 58mm.

The only guru for this that I know of is Go to flanges and if they don't have it, Steve will make it! He is now located by himself out of Rhode Island. Cheers.
