    Screw size: Horseman 45 LE front standard

    I want to mount a cold shoe onto the top of my Horseman 4x5 LE monorail. The top of the front standard is already factory drilled and tapped.

    I want to mount this cold shoe that has M2.5 screw thread:

    It will fit. If you make it fit.

    Buy a pitch gauge.

    It’s bigger than M4 - I checked with a screw from Home Depot. Sorry I don’t have a gauge.

    For those who follow, the threaded hole on front standard of Horseman LE 4x5 camera is as follows:

    M5-.8 x 10mm (metric size x thread count x length — the latter may vary based in your accessory but I could sink the 10mm length to full depth).

    If you live in the states, you can get these at Home Depot in the parts drawer cabinet in hardware section.
