Deardorff adapter lens board for Linhof format : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Recently, I was able to obtain a Deardorff 8x10 camera, and I am now looking for its lens. Since I have a Tachihara 4x5 which accepts Linhof lens board, I want to use one of the lens for Tachihara (Nikkor M300) for Deardorff in common. I would appreciate it if someone can inform me where I can get the adapter lens board for Deardorff so that I can mount all the subsequent 8x10 lens on Linhof board to make them common between 4x5 and 8x10.

There is also Gary Hurst, Both he and his brother are master machinists & photographers. Gary did just what you are asking for for me with my 8x10 and 5x7 Deardorffs so I can use the technica boards on both. A first class job on both boards, as well as a nice job adding front swing to the 5x7 Deardorff.
