I've measured the sheet that I have, and it comes in at 3mm. Not having seen the linkage for the Busch, I don't know whether this is too thick. I suspect that it will be...

I might be able to route it down, though.

If I can offer a couple of thoughts... I couldn't find the right thickness of aluminium once for a Linhof board I was making, so used a slightly thinner piece and ran a line of black electrical tape around the edge, mitred at the corners. It provided the right thickness and was light tight. Maybe easier than routing a thicker piece. Also for this board I superglued a piece of 3mm mdf on the back for a light trap. All spray painted mat black, worked well. I'm sure you'll do a great job of it.

Hi Lachlan,

Any luck with the lens board?
