    It looks sturdier than the noodle measuring tool that many home kitchens have, but hardly something I'd trust a good lens on. Also, can you see how difficult it might be to mount on a lens board?

    I was thinking more along the lines of DIY projects, for example, along with a magnifying lens on a Speed Graphic.

    Not much in the specs dept , the leafs of the iris would need to be pretty thick to support a lens and it would need a
    locking mech which this doesn't have.
    If ya got $50 bucks to burn....

    I saw this on a Facebook ad and had the same thought Vaughn.

    I have a project I might could use this with at some point for an iris. It's on the back-burner.
