Ive got a piece of 6mm x 50mm bent at 90deg which didn't do that. Can you use it?

Thanks, Shane.

I'm trying to find a piece of 80x80x6mm angle Al at the moment. If I can't find that, I'll be in touch!

Just when we were laughing and sniggering behind your back you go and post this.
Looking really good, my camera building lately has been limited to a piece of 8x10 matt board to make a blind in the back of the 810 so I can use the 4x10 film i have.

Should be able to put a few hours in to it today.
