Hello and thanks to anyone who might assist me, a new Century Grphic user. The Schneider optics vintage lens page says the flange thread for the 165/6.8 Schneider Angulon in Compur shutter is M58 x .75. Will this lens fit into the lens board of the Century Graphic? I measure the inside to inside lip of the lensboard at about 61mm square, give or take. Same question for the 203/7.7 Ektar in Number 2 Supermatic, no flange info available-sorry. Thanks again, Dick Williams

Um, I don't think that y'r Angulon will fit conventionally mounted, with mounting flange behind the board. But, if you really want to use it on y'r Century, you should be able to make (or have made) a flange that will attach to the front of the board; then screw the shutter into the flange.

I can't address this from my own experience, but I believe that the 203/7.7 in #2 Supermatic will fit normally.

Cheers,

Dan

According to old Kodak data books, The original outside flange diameter for the 203 is the same for the 105, the 127 and the 100 WF--- 1 15/16 or 49.1mm .

the hole should be 1.5" or 38.1mm.

So it will fit. But what you can focus on is another matter as you'll be stretching the bellows to its limit to focus to 6 feet.

Dan Fromm and Les, please let me thank both of you for your prompt and informative replies to my first communications with the Forum. I certainly can use the information you provided and will take it from here with this new knowledge. Hope I can do something for the group one of these days. Cheers! Dick Williams
