    Hello all,

    I ordered a spanner for the lenses in case I am out in the field and they come loose from the board. My question is, how do you use this thing?

    It is square with notches and I have no idea how it works. Any help or instruction would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks again,

    Kev

    Kevin,

    You must unscrew the rear lens cell, then you will find the different notches on the square's sides will fit Copal 0, 1, 3 and probably one other (Compur?) shutter's retaining ring notches.
