    Help with DeVere 8x10 needed!

    Hi, I have been wishing to try 8x10 for years and have finally decided to start. I have this big DeVere 8x10 monorail camera and a schneider 121mm f8 lens in plaubel lensboard. What I can not find on internet is the right size lensboards I need for DeVere. Is there another brand that will fit?

    If you can't find a board with the right dimensions, you might call SKGrimes. They carry or make lens boards for many different cameras, and might be able to help you. Their boards are listed here: Arca Swiss SKGrimes

    Make one. It takes like few minutes, unless you decide to go full monty with inserts and proper finish and all that.

    It takes a few minutes if you have the ability to drill a centered hole of the size needed to mount your lens.

    I made one once, but I had a friend with a machine shop.

    Thank you for your answers! I think I will try cutting one myself or find someone who does it cheap. Specialists like the SKGrimes will be too expensive for me.
