    I'm with Kumar - Make Your Own. I haven't bought a replacement ground glass in the last 70+ years during which I have owned and used a large number of LF cameras up to 7x17.

    Thanks Raphael for replying here. But I really do need the rulings…so as you only supply unmarked glass, have to see if I want to mark the lines myself.

    On the DIY route…did some digging, found an old thread here…which led to this link:

    Hmm…tempting.

    As a matter of fact we actually do offer grid on our ground glass and cameras

    Best of luck with making your own, I've stopped going to gym after spendind my days grinding some glass...

    Warmly,

    I’ve bought several from this seller on the big auction site.

    He also cuts in custom sizes and corners.

    Re: Ground glass replacement

    Have you tried finding an original Sinar? I bought a new old stock Sinar GG on the bay for my F2 in 2020. At €79 +€6 shipping it wasn't cheap. But it likely wasn't cheaper to replace when the camera was a current model.

    The camera came with a plastic integrated fresnel GG. I couldn't focus with a loupe because of the fresnel lines. The Sinar GG is perfect. Even with my 75/4.5 Nikkor it is bright enough.

    Hey Peter, might be worth it to check out this link for OEM Sinar GG: https://www.ebay.com/itm/37438809619...kAAOSwbLtjjMtb

    Best of luck,
