These both work.
47mm, earlier Super Angulon f/5.6 over 4x5"

My first:
155248

The most recent:
155249

Tomorrow the tripod quick release should be finished. (Sorry I did not include the finder or lens shade. See the woodie for an approximate.)

The 4x5 back is large because it is a universal with ground glass, folding metal viewing hood, and can accommodate universal attachments.

Nice Looking.

."MF to LF" : So, is a MF lens on DIY 4X5?

Do I have that right?

In this case, the lens and focusing helix came from a MF, 6x9cm roll-film camera. However, the 47mm Super Angulon covers 4x5! :)

I have a Brooks Veriwide which I have owned for at least 20 years. The 47mm Super Angulon clips the corners unless stopped down to at least f16. At what aperture do you use it on 4x5?

Do you have the f/8 or f/5.6 lens? My f/5.6 does not clip, however it will with a filter or the wrong lens shade.

I also have a Plaubel Veriwide 6x9cm (true 6x9, not the Brooks which is 6x8cm), with the f/8 and it does not clip at all.

EDIT: It just struck me that I have not used either at infinity! Farthest was about 40'. That might be important. (The 40' were a few hundred frames for a big electronics convention shooting company booths.)

No more, I promise. Some more pictures as links to save bandwidth:
