    Rodenstock Apo Ronar 9/360 copal number?

    Hi All,
    I have just purchased a Rodenstock Apo Ronar 9/360 barrel lens.
    I want to use it as portrait lens on my Toyo 45C camera.
    Does anybody know the size of the hole for the lensboard?
    Can I buy a standard Toyo lensboard of any Copal size, or will I need to build one?
    Here is the lens I bought, In case you want to see it.

    Thanks

    Be aware that there is a Copal 3 and a Copal 3S with different thread sizes for both the lens mount and the lens board mount. See this thread for more info:

    I'm not sure that those repro-type lenses fit in a shutter like the other versions... according to this German discussion, they don't. The sentence "Die Klimsch-Version hat als Zwilling der Repro-Version des Apo-Ronar leider auch gemein, dass es nicht in einen Verschluss passt." translates as "the Klimsch version unfortunately has in common with its twin, the repro-version Apo-Ronar, that it doesn't fit in a shutter. Further down though, it's alluded that the repro-type lenses may fit in the enormous compur 5S electronic shutter. I had a 480 that was in a 5S and it was a monster.

    Thanks Bob, Ed and Jim!

    Jim, I am not planning of applying a shutter. I'll use a lens cap or something similar!

    Given that you are so kind, I have another similar question:
    Which is the copal size of a:
    RODENSTOCK ROTELAR 6.6/270 GRAFLEX COMPUR SYNCHRO?

    That another lens I have just purchased for portraits.

    Thanks!

    Tiziano

    Edit: Bob, I too work for HP !

    The Rotelar 270mm was mounted in a Compur "MXCRI", that's the same size as a Copal #1. This shutters needs lens-boards with 41.6mm bore.
