Its touchy, too much and you need vice grips to put a lens on, too loose and well you get the point. They should have used the wavy washer method which not likely a patent issue as many tape machines used the same principal to apply spring like pressure.

I have not seen the nikon ultimate mount.

Looks exactly as you described. Frankly, I was surprised as it does not appear very robust and certainly not what I was expecting for the outlay. Ho-hum.

Ok.

Bob, Will,

Going to check out the tape modification. Seems like 'the way forward' - at least until I have earned enough to cover the purchase costs.
