    Hey Dann

    Did you make any progress?
    I created a paper template and plan to bend the components of my transition box myself out of 2mm aluminum...just waitin for some tools to arrive.
    Sorry Dann I don't want to hijack your thread, but I am curious about the progress of OdiWan72 folded metal transition box...

    OdiWan72 I am in the process of putting together a Hero Macro and was looking for a folded metal transition box, I am interested in your progress of making a folded metal transition box for your build...

    I am not building a transition box for the hero, but the STUNT macros.
    Did not use folded metal for my hero box, but the top of a 6/60, which I clad with aluminum to get rid off the uneven surfaces and to create the front edge
    Sorry man.

    I'd love to see what you've got so far with your box. I have an idea of what it should look like, and I guess it'd be something like three parts. Two sides, and the top folded over those sides.

    Here you go...

    The transition box will consist of three parts plus the added greeblie, thatīs attached to side of the Mamiya lenseplate.
    I will use 2mm sheet aluminum, so the final measurements need minor adjustments to take care of the material thickness.


    I already had a transition box made by Zombie Killer a few years ago, but it was created to fit to the Yashica (?) lenseplate, which prooved to be in accurate for the stunt macros, so I have to make a new improved one.

    What do you think?

    It all comes down to execution, but so far I like it. 😊

    That's pretty much exactly what I had in mind.

    Nice job!
