15mm Rod Spacing

Can anyone tell me if there is a standard spacing for 15mm rod supports?

I have access to machinists and tool makers who work for beer, all I need is to know the right dimensions and I can get my stuff made from marine-grade brass and anodised aluminium :)

I want a camera baseplate, letusXL V2 support, lens support and mattebox support and I'm hoping there is a standard spacing so I can mix and match accesories from different manufacturers.

thanks!

Pauly

60mm from the center of each rod. Are you sure Ben? This needs to be exact. Yep, 60mm. Thanks Ben! You're a great resource. Chris Hurd should send you a free t-shirt and one of those nifty pens with a white-balanced LED. Yes, I know, thanks.

For what it is worth, the same centres spacing seems to apply for an unbranded green teleprompter mount which has 12.5mm diameter rods.

I am currently modifying this for the owner to fit to the Letus/XL2 combination to prevent the image from moving when the lens settings are adjusted and for his Crossjele or whatever it is to fit on as well.

Slightly off-topic, if anyone has a design for a Fujinon ENG style backfocus adjuster for the front Nikon SLR lens mount to replace the geuine Letus item, I would be most interested in having a copy and saving myself the grief of designing as well as building one.
