    Need lens board #00 5x5" for Technika III 5x7" and hood for SA 8/90 (67mm)

    Urgent!
    I need a Linhof lens board for my Schneider Kreuznach Super-Angulon 1:8/90mm in Compur #00 shutter.
    It should fit my Tech III (5x7" - 13x18) and measures 5x5" (129x129x2mm) with a hole for #00 (1" - 25.4mm).
    I also need a hint, which hood you'd take for this wide angle lens (67mm).
    I already asked skgrimes, b&h, adorama and all these, but they all just have 4x4 boards for 4x5" Techs.

    Regards
    Frank

    I don't have one available, (using all of mine on my tech IV), but they're just flat boards with a small notch cut in the center of the bottom side. A friend of mine made me a couple out of old trashed street signs- any flat aluminum will do.
    They are NOT the easiest boards to find, but don't seem too difficult to make.
    (if you can't find one, I'll see if I can get my friend to make one for you, let me know and I'll find out pricing)

    Sounds good!
    But the boards for Tech III (5x7") are about 5/64" (2mm) strong.
    If your friend REALLY wants to manufacture these boards, maybe I could order three of them?
    Copal #00, #0 and #1?
    I would pay in advance by paypal, please email: FrankGosebruch@gmx.net

    Let me get in touch with Ross (might take a few days if he's busy with any work projects) and I'll put him in touch with you. I'd keep looking in the meantime though.
    He's machined a few interesting things for me before- boards for an old pre war 6.5x9 technika, and a recessed board for a beseler enlarger so I could use a 30mm enlarging lens for my minox negs to name a couple. I haven't seen him in a few weeks though, so be patient.

    I don't think the tech III's have that notch..tech IV's do ..Tech III's have a slight 'offset' or thinning of the back of board at the top and bottom about the last 1/8" however

    I received some boards from a tech III user that DO have that notch... not sure if they were later boards or not though. Works fine in my IV anyway..., and apparently in his III also.
