RE: [woodandbrass] lensboards and flanges
When I needed several lens flanges many years ago I advertised in the local newspaper for a brass worker to make them for me. He did a good job as I gave him an old flange to copy the style, at reasonable cost.
I applaud your efforts at sympathetic restoration. Lens boards can be reasonably approximated using wood from old film or plate holders. It's the flanges that are the devil to get, particularly here in the States where non metric rules. Keep doing what you're doing, my friend. Giving life to the dead using sympathetic restoration is a very good deed.
