Does anyone have such an adapter? Is it similar to Toyo 110 to Linhof adapter?

The Toyo 110mm lens board differs from the Arca Swiss 110mm lensboard in that the Arca Swiss has rounded corners. You cannot fit a Toyo lens board in an Arca Swiss standard and vice versa. There are special adapters for Arca Swiss 110mm to Technika style, for example those made by SK Grimes:

I made one, and as SK Grimes notes, you need to add some material to the front of the 110 board in order to fit a Linhof TK adapter. It's not an insignificant job.

I had SK Grimes make me one a couple of years ago. I had to send them a new 110 board and they built on it. I do not use it at all these day (switched 100% to Arca M Line 2 + digital back)--would you like to buy it?

darr has answered your question, but just in case you are ever in NYC (Tribeca) and want to see one (ie an SK Grimes one) you would be welcome to drop by the studio.

Best,
Helen

I guess that I have missed it...

The current SK Grimes one looks different - my guess is that it is entirely machined from scratch instead of being fabricated from an existing lens board. It was about $200, I think - I can't find the receipt right now.

Best,
Helen
