Does anyone know of a good source for lens boards for a speed graphic. The new boards available for the crown grapic are about 3 5/8 inches on a side. The speed boards are 4 inches on a side. The speed graphic boards will fit the graphic 2 view camera while the pacemaker crown graphic boards will not. Midwest camera might have them but they don't specify size or camera on their on line site.

Thanks for any suggestions,

Don

Don, per the bible, tenth edition, board sizes for Pacemaker Graphics are:

2x3, 2 1/4" x 2 1/4"

3x4, 3 3/16" x 3 19/64"

4x5, 3 23/32 x 3 21/32

Super Graphic boards are the same size as 4x5 Pacemakers. Crown Graphics and Pacemaker Speed Graphics (same size, of course) accept the same boards.

Graphic Views have their own boards, also an adapter that accepts 4x5 Pacemaker boards.

If you want to buy from Midwest, talk with Jim Andracki and tell him what size Graphic you have. www.skgrimes.com also sells boards for Pacemaker Graphics. Talk with Adam Dau, tell him what size Graphic you have.

Dan,

Thanks so much. That is the information I just didn't have. I'll follow up on it. The Graphic view camera adapter sounds as though it might solve the problem, if I can't locate the right boards. It would be great to share lenses between the crown and the graphic 2.

Thanks again,

Don

The Speed Graphic lens boards that are 4x4 are for Anniversary and older models. As Dan says, Pacemaker lens board will fit both Crown and Speed of the same format.
