    Height of Arca Extender Format Converting Set ? (raise front standard with 8x10 back)

    I'll have a little spare time to duck into the shop next week, and I'd like to make one of these extender pieces, which raise a 4x5 front standard when used with an 8x10 back. I have a spare dovetail piece and an old A/B function carrier that I can cannibalize for parts. All I need to know is the overall height by which this thing raises the standard, and I'll be set. Thanks in advance.

    Hi John, it raises the standard by 6cm. (2.36").
