Re: FLT 110 with field flatenner
- A few minutes ago I looked carefully at the image of the FF and the
35mm adapter that OPT has on their web catalog. The image there
shows the 35mm adapter with a normal male T-thread, but it looks
like the adapter might be in two parts and that the T-thread section
might be an insert itself. If the insert were missing then that
would explan the female rather than male interface?
