Ilex #4 Lensboard Size : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Can anybody tell me whether Ilex Shutter sizes correspond in mounting diameter to today's Copal sizes? For instance, will an Ilex #4 mount in, say, a Copal #X lensboard, or does it require a custom hole?

My Ilex No. 4 shutter fits into a hole drilled for a Copal No. 3, although it is not an absolutely precise fit. See Mr. Grimes's website; I believe he has all of these shutter specifications available there.

Regular #4 shutter takes a 2.604" diameter hole to mount it.
