Hello there Everyone
I thought I'd open up a Help thread for questions on the Kits some may have that go beyond or need additional
information to the Manual.
To start this off...
One of the Graflex Kit customers (EgonMcGregor) pointed out I switched 2 of the screw sizes in the kits
and I wanted to preemptively cover this for all kit builders so they will also know not to worry as this is a
simple error and has no effect on completing the kit.
I simply wound up including 4 of the 3/16 0-80 screws and 2 of the 1/4 0-80 screws and it should be the other way around
But Not to worry this is a simple error and has no effect on completing the kit and I'll explain why and show everyone so
that it will make sense.
Follow along with me and you will see.
On Page 5 (step4) you use the 3/16 as shown at the edge of the plate.
On Page 6 (step9) you use the 1/4 as shown for the bottom crystal loops and plate attachment.
Then on Page 12 (steps 4-6) is where the (discrepancy) difference is screws sizes is.
Both the 3/16 or 1/4 size work in this spot so that is where you will simply use the other two 3/16 The reason this happened is because I actually use the 3/16 my self in this spot because they are shorter and don't
protrude in a place where, when I install a CF with a large crystal I have only .5mm of tolerance so I need the shorter screw.
The DIY kit has plenty of room so I spec the 1/4 screws in this spot on the kit as their added length makes then easier to install but...
obviously when I bagged the kits I was thinking of the 2 shorter screws I my self use so, hence why just those 2 screws are shorter.I'll make sure to watch for that next time so the 3/16 and 1/4 are of correct quantity...
and not have what "I" use in my head when bagging the kits
Once again... Not to worry this is a simple error of only 2 screws and their sizes.
It has no effect on completing the kit if you simply follow my explanation above to use the right size in the right place and you'll be good to go.
Everything else is still correct in the Manual
P.S. thank you Egon for calling that to my attention
