Stopped at .5 and it was pretty close so .45 is probably what it is.

Works much better now, no binding, etc. But, you will still need a washer as the Shadow screw is .5mm too long. So, a .5mm washer should do.

Arthur Dent hoped and prayed there wasn't an afterlife. Then, realizing the contradiction, he merely hoped there wasn't an afterlife.

I'm trying to locate a m2.5 X.45 die from one of the machine shops we do business with.

I also have a small thin washer that will be double face taped to between the screw head and the Shadow. Double adhesive is only 5mil, washer is about .015

Looking forward to fixing this situation and start taking photos.


Well I found a M2.5 x .45 nut and ran it over the thread. There was a burr that needed to be flattened and the running of the nut over the thread fixed things just fine. I also put a .015 nylon washer under the head of the screw and now the unite works like a champ.

Used the Shadow today and wireless transmitter and receiver with a Yonguo 460Ii Flash.

Worked like a champ !
