    John you’re probably correct, but the little bottle of red was sitting on the shelf waving it’s arms saying “use me, use me!”

    Horseman solved the problem long ago, but also made a second problem as the special cable is rare

    Be faster and cheaper to just buy one from most camera repairmen in the USA if he lives here then importing one from the UK.

    For those interested.. On my manuals page at:
    http://www.southbristolviews.com/pic...icmanuals.html
    near the bottom of the page is a pic of the official thread specs for both male and female threads.

    Many years ago, I contacted several custom tap manufacturers and absolutely no-one replied to my request to create a tap... If someone knowns someone or knows a tap maker who can create such a thing, please let me (and everyone else) know

    I bought a replacement part for a copal shutter from SK Grimes several years ago. Even replaced one missing screw. I also found that when I needed to make an adapter for a recessed lensboard a 5-48 tap worked the best because it was the same number of threads per inch as a cable release even though the cable release is tapered and the adapter is not. However, that being said a 5-48 tap is not easy to find. Maybe MSC Direct or even eBay. The drill size I don’t remember....maybe #38.
