Hi Guys,

Now that Satin Snow aren't trading can anyone reccomend somewhere to get a new piece of ground glass for the screen of my Century?

The one I have is a bit dark/murky/cracked and would love to get something a bit nicer.

Also looking for a lens board (30mm hole) for the Century if anyone knows of a source.

Thanks

I can't help you with GG, but you can get undrilled 2x3 Pacemaker boards from mpex.com and skgrimes.com . Grimes will drill them, MPEX can't.

Thanks,

I'll probably go with sk grimes for the board. I assume the 2x3 Pacemaker board is identical to the Century?

Geert van den Broek in Belgium makes fine groundglasses.
See sheetfilm.be
Yes, the lensboards are the same.

Ebay "brilliant glass" auction....I havent used him yet but he is a possibility! (search for GG)
Perhaps our fellow member Dave Parker can suggest a substitute, however, doubt anyone will be able to match the quality of his product, (thanks Dave)
Have a nice day......Bert

I bought a 5x4 glass from him for a MPP Mk.8 Micro Technical which I was given, as a box of disassembled parts a few months ago. Good glass, cheaper than most, and arrived in just a few days.
