Little quick question - what is the thread on the front and rear of the Tak FS-78 reducer? I am thinking M56x0.75 (note: reducer still in transit otherwise I could measure it but I am getting the adaptor made now for the cam)

Lewis, the thread should be the same on both ends (M56 x 0.75) as the adapter #10 (TKP21001) can be fitted either directly to the draw tube or to the rear of the reducer (TKA21580).

 

Check your emails Lewis, I sent you the details to 168 different Takahashi adapters waytogo.gif   You're welcome lol.gif
