focus teeth onto a knob
Posted 30 September 2005 - 10:19 AM
I want to put focus teeth onto a dimmer knob. It s the dimmer knob on a gekko ringlight. Anyone ever succeeded in putting focus teeth onto such a thing.
I have ordered in a genio for the job with little lightweight mv26 motors. So I want to twist the little dimmer knob with the genio motors. In that kit I also have all the old chroizel gear adaptors... any ideas? blue tac !? double sided tape?

It's available at basically any home improvement store. Heck, it held one of my old sled bases together, and it at the moment holds my spare gimbal parts together, so I'd say it'd definetly be good for this. Just don't expect to get it off without a hacksaw.

if the pot is anything like the one on the Litepanels then maybe just use a thick rubber band.
We could stick some nylon/plastic washers to the outside of the pot and the m26 gear to hole help the rubber band stay in place.
Failing that maybe there is a simpler electronic solution ?
Break out the wires from the pot then solder in a thin extension at the other end re soder the pot on or an other pot of same ohms.
Yes it would mean a light wire to your rig but sounds a lot simpler to me.
Hope this helps
