Physical dimensions XPan (II)

What a great idea! A 90 degree mount for my F3! I took my Kirk plate off my Xpan and tried it. The plate fits nicely however the holes don't line up. If you look at the MD-4 the hole is directly centered in the base. The Xpan hole is a little off center. I think it could be made to work by reaming out the hole in the bracket a little bit, but then the screw would no longer be self retaining. I'm going to have to think about this.................

After playing with it more I've found it doesn't fit perfectly on the bottom. You would have to grind off one side to allow it to fit. Not sure I want to try it as I use my Xpan way more than my F3, although it would still be usable on the Xpan if modified.

Would it be possible to post a pic with the L-plate mounted, even though it doesn't fit exactly i.e. off center. It will give me a clue of what needs to be modified. The Kirk L-bracket is way to expensive for trial and error experimenting :) Thanks again! You are prolly the only person with both XPan, MD-4 AND Kirk plate...
