    Lens cone for Saunders/LPL 4500 II (compatibility question)

    I just purchased a Saunders/LPL 4500 II enlarger on fleaBay & I need to kit it out for 45. I plan to buy a 150mm lens and a corresponding board/cone. There's a seller on fleaBay who has cones with various thread diameters that fit the enlarger. My question is whether the cone needs to be a specific depth based on the lens focal length, e.g., is a cone for 50mm different than one for 135mm, apart from the hole size?

    There's only one standard cone length for the LPL 4x5 - the only variation is by mounting hole size.

    There is a deep recessed lens board for lens less than 50mm, there is also a reversable that I used for my 50mm and reverse for longer lens.

    Thanks, guys. Looks like aftermarket reversibles are readily available on fleaBay in various diameters, so I'll be buying one of those once I purchase my lens.
