Speed Graphic and Industar-37

I finally managed to mount a 300mm Industar-37 lens to a Speed Graphic lens board. It barely fits, and the bellows are stretched to the max, but it is a nice lens, just like the other Industar lenses I have.


I thought it would be a heck of a portrait lens, and it probably will be, but I cannot focus closer than about 15 feet because the bellows on my Speed Graphic will not expand enough. I will have to check to see if anybody makes a bellows extension for the Speed Graphic.
