I wanted to know if the Tachihara 4x5 is able to use different sizr copal lens boards? I currently have the wista copal 0 lens board but wanted to know if I was able to use other size of Copal like the 1, 2,or 3?

Still trying to get a lens that will work for it.

I'm using #3 and #1 shutters on my Tachihara. The #3 seems to be the maximum to fit in this board.

I have a Copal 3 on that kind of board (Linhof Master Technika) and it shure is the maximum the board van have.
A Wista board has the same size as the Technika board.

Santo the ''size'' indicates the size of the hole in the lens board to accommodate the different shutter sizes ie Copal 0. 1. & 3. Sorry if I've misinterpreted your question and your already aware of this:)

I've got an Ilex #5 Universal mounted in a Tachi board, and that's a pretty big hole. I'm sure a Copal #3 will fit easily.
