    Re: 5x7 Elwood enlarger lens board

    They are wooden and should be simpler to make than camera lens boards.

    Re: Elwood enlarger

    I just purchased a 7 1/2 inch for mine in the current set up after testing a 203mm camera lens and finding it a bit too long but usable. I plan to only enlarge to 11x14.
