So I have a BX40, but I need a the adapter to mount more capable turrets onto it. Here's the first round of prototypes based off the other adapters I've done and posted here:

Hi Bob,
interesting, so what other turrets are you fitting to your BX?

Looks good Bob! all that really need is the other-side. From images of the actual adapter 'U-READB' the other (i.e. the same as the top of a fixed-nosepiece) is a simple circular protrusion that grub-screws into the frame...

Have you seen the images of the actual adapter that I posted?

The side you've made so-far,

Another piece that will fix/stick to the piece you have made, will need this feature. Alternatively of course a one-piece part as in the metal original would be great!

The side-on view of the frame-insert 'lip',

If you can make one of these - you'll have me slavering for a test-drive of it!! :D :D
