We have an enormous junk pile that I'm sure could supply enough scrap pieces. I'll even try to make it look pretty...

Quote from: Dave on August 02, 2018, 11:28:25 AMSorting out some camera stuff I came accross a front mounting extra-wide angle lense I had forgotten about. The camera focussed on one of the trusses about half way across and the shadow at the bottom front is partly the lens shadow with the built in flash.As I said, space is at a bit of a premium and you soon learn where to duck! It was hot up there so I did not play for long.

There was slso a UV, a CPL and an adaptor between the two lenses and the only current lens I could mount it on was the 18-140mm job, need a new filter adaptor for new 18-55mm.And, yes, it does mount via the filter thread! It is not a high quality item. But I think the comparison info is wrong, it clains it is a bayonet fit with a 35mm focal length and 30x zoom! Though the spec looks about right. Wondering about the price, I paid £30 for mine 6 years ago. Too many things wrong about this advert.https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0017W70JE/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Of red you will want to use some heat to soften the compound before attempting and it can take a lot of heat. A small impact driver may help as well if you think the lens can stand up to some gentle tapping. What type of screws are they? I can't make it out from the photo.
