    Chinese generic lens boards

    I've lost the contact details of the company in China who sell generic Sinar lens boards. Can anybody help please?

    I just got a pair of #3 Linhof boards from Luland that are very well made.

    Badger Graphics sells them. I don't know if they are at a similar price point to what you have been paying.

    Beware of purchasing "generic" lens boards. Went that route years ago and regretted it. Bought a bunch of "Sinar" and "Linhof" style generic boards and half of them did not fit on my cameras. So went the route of purchasing used OEM boards and all of them fitted perfectly.

    For every example, a counter-example. I've bought several of the Chinese boards, both pre-drilled & blank, on FleaBay w/ absolutely no problems.

    I have purchased several Shen Hao brand boards from Rudy. All fit great on my two cameras that take Technika - type boards plus my ARCA adapter. I like the fit on my Walker Titan better than Toyo brand Technika - type boards.

    If a few strokes with a file had bothered me, I would not be happy with my ecbuy purchase. It didn't,and I am.
