    "0" to"1" adapter ring

    Does anyone make an adapter ring to mount a "0" shutter on a "1" board? Thanks, Steve.

    I would contact Steve Grimes at www.skgrimes.com If anyone can do it, he can. He might have already done it! He's the large format guru. Cheers

    "0" to"1" adapter ring

    Steve: I think you must have someone who really knows what he is doing make you an adapter. The spacing between the lens cells is critical. The air space is in effect a lens element on most designs. You will probably be better off in the long run to trade the number one shutter for a "0". I suspect that having rings made would cost about the same as trading shutters. Steve Grimes can certainly make the adapters, but precision machine work isn't cheap. Steve has a web site.

    Regards,

    "0" to"1" adapter ring

    I don`t wish to swap shutters, but use a complete "0" mounted lens on a "#1" board. The hole is too big and merely needs a shim of some type or a mounting ring that is oversized to tighten down on the larger board. Thanks, Steve

    "0" to"1" adapter ring

    Steve: Sorry. One of the problems of getting old is that your mind and eyes don't always communicate with each other. You wrote lensboard and I read shutter. You ought to be able to make an adapter ring out of thin metal or tough plastic that would let you tighten up the retaining nut and hold the shutter in the board. I cut such a spacer for one of my boards from plastic using a Stanley knife. An Exacto or pocket knife would work just as well. I placed a thin rubber "O" ring around the shutter mount threads to hold it centered in the hole. Just put the plastic spacer between the board and the retaining nut and all should be well.

    Regards,
