Hi,

I own a Super Graphic that came with a 135mm Raptar. I recently purchased a 203mm Kodak Ektar and would like to mount it in its own lensboard. My questions:

1. What are some sources for Super Graphic lensboards?
2. What is the size of the hole I'll need to have bored into the lensboard so I can mount my 203mm Ektar (in a Supermatic shutter)?
3. Are lensboards from Speed/Crown Graphics interchangeable with Super Graphics (I don't need to use electronic shutter release)?
4. Is there another manufacturer who's lensboards will fit the Super Graphic.

Thanks!
Mark

1). The links to Used on the home page. EBAY

2). I don't know but measuring the center of the mount threads with a metric caliper or ruler will be close enough, usually round up to next number, ie 36.4mm=37mm.

3). Yes, pacemaker series boards should fit.

4). I think its Columbia Camera that offers boards on EBAY that they make, claim to be equal to origionals, usually black.

both columbus Camera and Midwest Camera Exchange sell repro lens boards. These will fit a super graphic.

Most of the metal boards out there will have a pair of raised dots on each of the four sides. These are interchangeable with both the Super and the Pacemaker, however occasionally you can find boards with only one set of dots, these may or may not fit a Super because the the Super uses slide locks on the side while the Pacemaker used them on the top and bottom, and the board is not square so it won't rotate.
