Lens board dimensions

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Can anyone tell me the external dimensions of a Graflex lens board? If there are more than one size, perhaps telling me the size of each would be best. My specific need is to know whether they are the same size as the TOYO 110mm boards. Will they fit my TOYO 45A camera?

I do not know the exact dimensions of a graflex board. You might want to check www.graflex.org. However, they are not interchangeable with toyo 110mm boards. They are too thick.

Good Luck

There are a number of Graflex board sizes. The Graflex Super D 4x5 takes a B board with a dimension of 3.75"x3.75". The C board is 4"x4" and fits the Folmer Graphic 4x5 & 5x7. I also use one on my Wisner. There is also a 3.25" x 3.25" board for the Graflex 3A, 3-1/4 x 4-1/4 R.B Speed, Speed Press, R.B. Auto Graflex and old 4x5 Auto Graflex. I've got to believe there are others as well.

Check the archives ... Toyo makes (or made, anyway) an adapter for its cameras that allows you to use Graflex lensboards.
