adapter how to

I used a 35mm adapter to shoot a short this past weekend and was blown away at the look it gave us.

so.. im looking for a good how-to or guide on making my own 35mm lens adapter. I looked around and liked the threads about other people's lenses but i havent really seen anything in the way of an actual set of instructions on how to make one.

For $50, you can get a full set of instructions and a ground glass screen (actually plastic) from the Redrock company, who also build the M2. I built one using the plans as a starting point, and then working things with my own changes.. See:

Hi Daniel:

Yeah, I have seen it before, and was trying to recall it for the response above. Didn't have you bookmarked.

Actually, I'm thinking this will probably be my next attempt, to build a vibrating tube adapter, because fo the need for a more run and gun adapter.
