    cheap source for linhof style lensboards

    After a lag in shooting 4x5, I have just purchased a Shen-Hao 4x5 and it has got me motivated again. I need to pick up about 5 lensboards.. where is the cheapest source for linhof-style lensboards that will fit on my Shen-Hao? (ebay seems to be running about $30 each)

    Do you care what the hole size(s) are?

    Cheaper than $30 on ebay. Look harder.

    Similar boards were easier to make out of flat aluminum for my Anba Ikeda than for almost any other camera.

    I've bought a few Chinese-made boards when I couldn't find them here or elsewhere.
    For flat boards, I pay $19 shipped, for recessed, $26 shipped (I think).
    On eBay, look for seller ID jinfinance.

    Does the Shen-Hao take boards with the hole in the center or offset?

    this is what you're looking for: http://www.ebay.com/itm/280695758531...84.m1438.l2649

    they're great, bought a few for my linhof TK. $19.5 incl. shipping.
    they're shen hao. the seller has both center and off center boards. good luck.

    Two of the boards that I bought from JDFinance were marked Shen-Hao.
