    I've bought a helical focusing mount from this guy, something a bit more demanding than a wide flange retaining ring, and it's fine. There's nothing wrong with the quality of his goods.

    I bought an adapter board from him and had a good experience, good quality, really fast shipping. I've also spoken with him over email about doing some custom work and he seems like a good guy and his prices are very reasonable.

    I was in the same position few years ago, but I asked a colleague who is skilled with lathe to made me one, as it's very straight thing to do for someone in the know. I think that 60$ for this is a bit on expensive side, so this one might be the answer. I bought a M42 to EOS adapter from this guy, and can recommend him as honest guy.

    Like others I've bought adaptors etc from this ebay seller, they are realistic prices.

    However in this case I'd just make a lens board from Aluminium then drill it for a #00 and spray paint it satin black. The Cambo boards I have are just flat metal rounded edges with a couple of cut-aways, nothing difficult. I did the same to fit a 65mm f8 SA to my Wista in the late 80's and I'm still using the board with no problems.

    Marko,

    This adapter is only selling for $16.50, including shipping.

    At that price, it isn't worth the time and effort to make your own adapter or lens board.

    Coipal DID make a 00 shutter, although it's no longer in the product line.

    Google finds lots of references to it, all for older equipment.

    Thank you all for your comments, given the low price I will try it out and report back when it arrives.
