No need for any retainer rings or spacers.
Perfect fitting for the 7 inch Aero lens thread.


The factory made new type lens board is made out of one piece of aluminum like the original Graflex boards, including the machined drilled hole with the exact diameter and the special thread fitting to the Aero lens. The lens board is easy to handle when mounted in your camera lens holder because it will fit perfectly in the lens standard of the Pacemaker Speed Graflex and is guaranteed light proof. The aluminum of this new lens-board is a bit thicker than the original Graflex lens board thus strong enough to hold the huge weight of the big Aero lens.  JoLo mark III Lens board

Note: This lens board does not fit to the earlier pre-war or  Speed Graphic Anniversary Camera, If you have any doubts please

send me some photos of your camera and wait for my judgment to be absolute sure the lens-board will fit to your camera.

Note: Unlike the Anniversary black lens standard, the Chrome plus Aluminum lens standard is the one which is suitable to be equiped with the 7 inch Aero lens.




The JoLo lens board allows another sophisticated use like mounting several old barrel lenses to your Speed Graphic camera.
