    Rick beat me too it . Except as I look again, I realize that you said that yours is a D2, not a D5.

    So I think you need to go to the "Lens Mount" section on here instead: http://www.khbphotografix.com/omega/.../D2.htm#Mounts

    Based on that, I think you need a 4 1/2" cone, and either a 42mm, 52mm or 62mm Flat Lens Disc (where the size corresponds with the size of the hole).

    The link that Rick posted makes it seem most likely that the lens has a 53mm thread.

    I indeed posted the link to find the thread size.

    THanks, guys. I'm going to have to check exactly what I have at home to be sure, bring out the calipers to see what the thread is.

    I'll check in here tonight again.

    Appreciate your time!

    Does the lens have a locking ring? I've used a 6" lens on a D2 and 4x5 with no trouble.

    To properly identify the thread you also need to know the pitch (the distance from one crest to the next).

    It's probably 0.75mm, but no guarantee.

    From what I can recall, yes there is a locking ring, but I'd have to double check. If there isn't, it might get tricky to find one...
    If all else fails, I can always have someone machine a piece for me, with the correct thread, and hopefully then eliminate the need for the locking ring.
    Thanks for confirming that 6" on a D2 will work.

    I don't know how to find out the pitch, but it might not be necessary since I believe the lens came with the locking ring. I'd have to head home and into the darkroom to find out, though... Thanks for the tip.

    OK. If you already have the ring then the pitch is irrelevant.

    I checked the El-Nikkor catalog and the thread is in fact 53mm x 0.75mm. So you need a 53mm hole.

    For future reference...
    Pitch is normally measured with a gauge designed for the purpose. Relatively inexpensive, but not for a one-shot use.
