I recently obtained a Graflex 4x5 camera and need to know if my SB 28 or SB800 can be safely used without damaging the flash?

They can be safely used with an electrically sound cord. The lens just completes the circuit long enough for the flash to fire.

I would also like to know if anyone knows of a sync cord that has the female pin socket of the graflex lens and will connect to the hot shoe or pc connection on the SB800?

I forgot where I bought mine, but Paramount Cords can build you either cord. Alternatively, B&H offers an in-stock solution using two cords:

Cord 1
Cord 2
