Machinist needed to make a retaining ring.

Postby Lachlan717 » 15 Jul 2013, 08:24

Looking for recommendations on a LOCAL* Machinist to turn up a retaining ring for a newly purchased lens with a weird-sized Seiko shutter.

Thanks in advance!

*S.K. Grimes wants US$80 to do it, with postage each way of $50+, so not interested in using them for this...

Hi Lachlan, saw your post a couple of weeks ago when I was looking for someone to make the same thing. I went down to my local nut and bolt shop here on the Gold Coast, they recommended a local CNC Machinist, he did an awesome job out of aluminium and is now making me a lens board out of aluminium for my Marion 8 x10. So I would suggest yer local bolt shop as your first stop.
Cheers Andrew
