    Anyone ever repaires an iris clamp?

    I opened the clamp a bit too far and the opening "key" seems to have gotten disengaged from the iris itself so now it's completely open and the key just sort of spins around but the clamp doesn't close. Has anyone fixed one of these? Any suggestions welcome

    Thanks

    I found the problem. Partially dis-assembled the clamp and I could see that a long tome ago someone else much have had the same problem because there were a couple of teeth missing from the ring gear at the end of it's travel. They must have hot the end and tried to turn further, breaking off the teeth. As long as I leave about 1/8" of iris showing all is well.

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!
