Sometimes you just have to do it yourself :)
Cutting close to the lines saves lots of machining!

The 4 jaw would probably be fine, but the tailstock helps the pucker factor on the interupted cut.

I still have to drill and tap the holes that secure the adapter to the tripod and make it pretty. I ran out of steam and had to go play Valentines day :)

Very nicely done. I did the same thing for an EM-200. Worked well.
