    Hey, I am currently looking for a Graflex 4x5 camera of any model with a graflok or standard attached spring back or one that is only good for parts. The bellows do not need to be good and there does not even need to be a lens. Another brand of 4x5 spring back would also probably work fine.

    Thanks in advance,
    Aaron

    Do you want a Graflex back, a Graflok back, or a Graphic Spring back? To my knowledge no Graflex back is a spring back and does not take a standard 4x5 holder.

    Well, ultimately what I am looking for is a 4x5 spring back. I found one on eBay for $25 and didnt jump on it fast enough and it was gone. I intend to do a Polaroid conversion with it and I have the tools to fabricate or modify any one as needed. A graflok back would be percectly fine, they just generally run a bit more expensive.

    I believe what I had found on eBay was described as a graflex spring back and had bolt holes to specifically attach it to the camera. It was definitely not a graflok back. I did not see any branding however so the description could have been incorrect and it could have been from another camera.

    You should look into Burke & James backs as well. Something may turn up there.

    I've got an anniversary speed graphic with a spring back I think-- I would sell just the back. Let me dig it out when I get home tonight. It's a parts camera.
