Lens Mounting System
Single, 39mm (Leica thread)lens mounts require lensboard (No.8021)(requires jam nut) or (No.8086)(contains mounting flange). For three-lens turret system (No.8225), most enlarging lenses are equipped with a 39mm (Leica) mounting thread which will screw directly in to the three openings on the turret lensplate. If your lens does not have a 39mm thread or if the distance from the mounting face to the rear of the lens is greater than 13mm, or the other diameter of the lens is greater than 54mm, then a lens mount or spacer is required(No.8370), 39 x 6.5mm(No.8371), 39 x 11.5mm (No.8373), 50 x 21mm. An expanded list of specific lens mounts is available for both systems.
Please call store to confirm which lensboard or spacer is required for your system
