Lens Cap

Joe in a Cleveland suburb
>Hello.

I lost one of my lens caps to one of my camera lenses. It would be easy to go buy one. I suppose cheap too.

I got to wondering though if it would be difficult to make something with my lathe and some scrap cherry, walnut, or something similar.

It's basically just a disc about 3.5" dia. Not sure how it would attach though. It would either need to fit over the outside of the lens or there would need to be some kind of spring loaded type thing holding on to the inside of the lens filter.

Just a silly idea but has anybody ever done this?

Thanks,
Joe
