    Chances are that it's a bug. Most of us look at the server log files for stats. Done right a log file can yield a great deal of information.

    Now, not to be too critical I remain skeptical of this project. For such simplicity 3D printing as practiced today is a misapplied technology. With machinable acrylic, or even wood, kits could be offered more efficiently and with great finesse. I do not suggest aluminum because my preference for disposable waste.

    I am a babe-in-the woods regarding what is and is not re-cycle able, but I would think that aluminum chips, fileings and cut-off bits would be as recyclable as aluminum cans or the broken ladder I brought in once.

    I would welcome a fixed focus kit canera with lots of good looking wooden parts. When these threads started, I looked on e-bay for wooden pin-hole cameras to adapt, but found very little. There used to be some beautiful box or finger jounted examples, but I couldn't turn up any.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!

    I should have been more clear. I am familiar with recycling aluminum bits left over from machining and it is not even a break-even proposition.

    Thanks for that clarification: I did misunderstand.

    The idea of making the camera in aluminum comes from reading something about commercial 3D shops using sintered metals in 3D additive manufacturing. In that case there would little waste (I think).

    This project is awesome! I found myself shopping around for 58mm SAs and had to slap my wrist!
