Forgive my ignorance, I've seen post 'only if I had a 3D printer " can someone explain please?.paulham wrote:My E700 was delivered yesterday and with some guidance from JDK1, this morning I got the IR filter off.
I hate building DSA's, the whole time I'm doing it I think 'only if I had a 3D printer I wouldn't have all this headache'.
Well onto making the DSA for the E700, I went down to B&Q armed with some measurements and headed to the plumbing isle. I got a coupler and a screw on end cap for 40mm ABS pipe. I have 2 MTC Mamba's and 1 Nikko Sterling so the measurements were for the Mambas only.
I already had some screw on photography filter adapters from a previous build which I allowed me to screw a Sony Handycam onto the scope.
The adapters are 38-52 & a 52-52 (coupler).
- FloPlast 40mm Abs Solvent Waste Coupler
- FloPlast 40mm Abs Solvent Waste Access Plug
- 38mm-52mm Step Up Ring Filter Adapter
- Male to Male 52mm-52mm filter adapter
The camera fits snugly into the access plug, you should drill a hole for the wires somewhere in the pipe so that the screw off cap still works.
The ABS coupler fits into the 52mm coupler, i used some black electrical tape to bulk it out a tiny bit to keep it snug. I would wrap the whole lot in black electrical tape to hold it together.
You can then screw it on and off.
