Re: Clocking idea?

Ah the wonders of Digi-Cameras..

Always take lots and LOTS of pictures boys and girls.

That's the back of a Th350.. you can see the first groove is for the O-ring, the second is for the shoulder on the adapter.

And the adapter.
now.. I guess i have to find a way to put a shoulder on the plate im making.. or not use one..

What do you guys think about re-drilling my adapter?
It DID cost me A-LOT of money.. but hey.. how hard could it be? :P

assuming there are no casting webs in the way.. whats the worse case scenario? its soft alum.. so... i drill in the wrong spot.. it doesnt line up, and im back to sqaure one and need a clocking ring..

Re: Clocking idea?

I've redrilled 208 and 203 adapters to clock/mount 300 cases. On the 203 adapters, I have used clocking rings to get holes in places where there aren't any obstructions. I have used a clocking ring for a guide, used transfer punches for center punches, and drilled on a drill press. Works every time, because the bolts only hold it together, it's the shoulder that aligns it.
