    Re: Hole Saw For Commercial Ektar Lens

    I'm reminded of the time I had a master machinist cut a hole in a Sinar aluminum lensboard. He put the board in a lathe and cut a perfectly clean hole ALMOST all the way through the metal, then with...

  9. Re: Light trap foam thickness, Sinar Norma?
