Lomo P-111 leveling feet

Postby Rob Watson on Wed Dec 13, 2006 6:41 pm

I just recieved the P-111 today. The last detail to finish this off would be levelling feet. I see four small threaded holes on the bottom of the base that look made for the task. Can anyone tell me the thread type so I can get some feet?
Thanks

Hi

Those threads were designed only to secure the rubber feet, as smooth holes would not work. The threads were really not designed for leveling feet, though if you could find the right threads, you could add them. However, that is a spec not provided by LOMO.

I found some nice feet that fit fairly well. I have about 5 sets left over and if you want them I will send them to you. Contact me for details.

The threads in the base are M6-1mm thread pitch for those interested.

The parts I found that work came from www.mcmaster.com

part number 9540K28 are the feet which come in minimum of 25 parts (that is why I have some left over). If someone would like some for retro fit thier P-111, let me know. If you would like to see a photo of my P-111 with the feet installed I'l email it to ya!

Thanks.

Hi Rob

Thanks for the info.

We do not allow selling on our forum, so I edited out the prices, but for the sake of our readers, I will say that Rob is being very helpful here. Contact him directly for details.
