I am starting out in LF. I have a Rodenstock lens and metal lensboard. A Toyo l ens wrench is on it's way to me. I am trying to figure out how to put the lens o nto the lensboard. I saw a mounting ring (nut) riding on the threads behind the copal shutter. The core of my question is that, since the rear of the lens is larger than the hole on the lensboard, then how do I put the the lens through the hole? Do I need t o unscrew the rear part of the lens?
Since I don't have the courage to experiment on this expensive lens. I would lik e to get some hints here. Thanks a lot in advance.
