    Waterhouse templates

    Hi,

    I know I can probably DIY this myself, but I was wondering if someone has or is willing to provide the dimensions or even a simple template to build the Waterhouse stops for a Dallmeyer 3D and a 4D.

    Even a picture of a paper with a pencil tracing of the edges and hole(s) would be very useful.

    Thanks in advance!

    Kiwi,

    I have done a drawing for a set for my Ross No 3 Universal that you are welcome to use as a starting point.

    The straight vertical sides are the width of waterhouse stop opening, and the bottom radius is that of the internal of the lens.

    I have not yet had these cut, as waiting for the library to open again to get access for the 2D laser cutting table in the maker-space, but could farm them out to a shop that does laser, water jet, or abrasive 2D cutting.

    Hope that is helpful,

    Len

    I used heavy card stock to make a template.

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