The latest modification: 7 inch Aero lens mounted on JoLo Mark III lens board.
No more retainer ring or spacer needed.
Now available again in very small numbers.
These factory made new type lens boards are, unlike the earlier home made lens boards, made out of one piece of aluminum, like the original Graflex boards, including the machined drilled hole with the exact diameter and special Whitworth thread for the Aero lens. They are easy to handle when changing lenses, because they will fit perfectly in the lens standard of the Pacemaker Speed Graflex and are 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. Another advantage is the fact that the edges are a bit higher to compensate the missing notches on the front and therefore create the space, which the 4 mm retainer needs to find its place between the front standard and the lens board.

For those who want to use the JoLo mark III lens-board for other lenses as well as the Aero Lens, the JoLo adaptor is very useful. The adaptor fits into the JoLo Mark III lens board (the same one as can be used for the Aero Lens). The JoLo Lens Board has a inner Whitworth thread.
