Hi, I am looking for a focus scale to mount on my 4x5 crown graphic that matches my 90mm optar WA... I have made the marks by hand and can get by that way, but I would prefer to have an actual factory one installed on my baby. I've read that Graflex made focus scales for all kinds of lenses and that a list of the part numbers for the various focus scales exists. I can't find that list anywhere. If anyone happens to know the part number for the distance scale I need it would surely make it easier for me to find one.

THANKS!

Focus scales, like Rangefinder cams, were made according to a lens actual measured focal length which can varry up to 5% of the marked focal length.
The only list that I know of:
