Mounting the cable carriers

Postby LeonS » Fri Apr 01, 2011 9:17 pm

I evidently wasn't looking in the right place, because I couldn't find any instructions or relevant drawings about the cable carrier installation.

I suspect the pictures and common sense will get me through most of it. I have two questions:

1) Does the hardware kit include the cable carrier screws and fasteners?

2) What size would you recommend for the screws that would go into the lens carriage since the fasteners are built into the carriage?

Sorry for such trivial questions. :oops:

The built in fasteners were added on the second buy of the carriage. Some people have threaded standoffs. I do not think the hardware was included because it is for an optional item. The hardware should be #4-40 screws. I will add some hardware to future kits for this. I am going to use truss head screws because the head is thin and gives more room at the entrance to the carrier.
