    Custom Metal Lens Boards?

    Anyone know of a resource to make some custom metal lens boards for a rare Beseler C-6 4x5 press camera?

    I have one original lens board, so I can provide the exact dimensions.

    As a general reference, the lens board is just slightly smaller than a standard Linhof Technika/Wista lens board (96mmx99mm)

    Message me if you know of a resource that can make these.

    Thanks

    Tim

    SK Grimes has made copies of an existing metal lens board for me.

    https://www.ebay.com/usr/zbima1 makes almost any lens-board, usually wood

    But he did make me 2 metal ones exactly to my spec 5 years ago

    Mine were flat metal, I have no idea if your camera uses more complex forms

    write him, he is a LF user who loves all communication, he is willing to make anything

    I met him 3 times at his Chicago location, where you drive into a giant warehouse to find his shop in a corner
    wear mask or NOT

    is ???
