Thread: Machining shops in Singapore

  1. #1

    Default Machining shops in Singapore

    I'm looking to make some metal camera accessories (simple items like metal lensboards) based on some drawings and samples I have

    Are there any machine shops in Singapore that can do things like that?

    Alot depends on the tolerances, if its general +/- 0.1mm its ok. If you are talking about +/- 0.05mm, then you will be talking about something quite different.

    Hello

    I'm looking for the same thing as Jing, can you give me your contact ?
    Do you know if they can measure and do a copy of an adapter ? The front part is ok
    but I want to mount it to another camera. I have both the front and the back mount
    except they are from 2 separate parts, I just need them to be from 1 part.

    I'm trying to make an adapter plate for my digital back.
    Basically all I need is a flat metal board cut a certain size, with the mount that allows the digital back I have to fit onto the lensboard.
    Is that a difficult thing to do? Wanna try?
    If that is possible then it's even possible to make your own camera actually...
