Hi all;

I've come up with some things that I've needed for a while and thought I'd make a run of them at the machine shop.

The first batch will be done in 10 days.

All are made of 304 Stainless steel, not cheap aluminum or some other soft metal.

Here is my thought.
3/8" to 1/4-20" camera hole inserts. Different lengths.

1/4-20" camera screws, different lengths.

3/8" cameras screws, 3/4" long which is about double what is out there now.

I keep running into brackets and plates and cameras that are all non-traditional mating set-ups and I'm relieved everytime I get it all together with the current screws I have.

Among my friends/ACs etc. these new screws/inserts are known as the
"Oh shit kit" and you pull out the little case and see what's now possible.

Pictures soon.

Hi all;

Here are machine shop drawings of the screw set, all out of 304 Stainless Steel.

They've been delayed but will be finished around the end of August.

The costs should be;

$8.00 each for the insert/bushings (3/8" to 1/4-20")

$10. each for the 1/4-20 screws

$12. each for the long 3/8" screws.

I'm trying to come up with a package deal and will have that soon.

Let me know if you think you want a set.

I'm just trying to get rid of this first batch and keep about 10 for me.
