Has anybody ever seen one of those or made one? I just ordered a Wehman and would like to be able to switch at least one lens between the two cameras.

Mr. Grimes made me one which allows the smaller Canham boards off the DLC to fit the 6" Sinar-sized opening of the JMC. It was around $150 and the quality was excellent, I supplied a Sinar board for him to use for the base. I believe the Grimes organiztion will still do this. I don't know the size of the Wehman board, and I guess I am assuming that it is larger than the Canham board. The greater the size difference the easier this is to do.

Why not ask Bruce Wehman whether he can make one for you?

Hi Juergen, Im eager for reading your opinion about the Wehman!

As I've mentioned before, I had www.bromwellmarketing.com machine one of my Wehman boards into a converter-to-Technika board, which works fine. IIRC it cost around $150-190. Better to call than email. I assume but cannot promise that they could also accommodate your Canham board. So there you have two possibilities.

The Wehman board is made out of some composite material that I assume would be easier to work than metal.

When I was seriously considering a Wehman Bruce said he would make a Wehman to Technika adapter for me for $100 or so.

Thanks for all the input. I did ask Bruce if he could make one for me but he pointed me to SK Grimes. I'll try Bromwell and Grimes. SK Grimes did make a Sinar to Linhof Tech III adapter for me once and it was nicely done - it just takes so long for them to make it ( I think I waited 7 weeks for the adapter).

Bromwell also takes forever; the actual machining takes place overseas (not in USA).

I did order the lensboard adapter from SK Grimes and it only took two weeks to get it back from them - cost was a very reasonable $135 - I supplied the two lensboards of course. It is very well done and I highly recommend their services.
