FLI PDF help

I am currently having trouble removing the camera side adapter of a PDF and I was hoping that there may be someone in the Melbourne area that has one that I could borrow for 20 minutes to use as a benchmark?

Keep the camera attached and rotate it. The camera/filter wheel is a good tool to open stuck adapters rather than some other tool like those rubber strap oil filter removers Bunnings sell. That would be my 2nd choice as they are non marking.

Sometimes adapters get tight as the camera/filter wheel can be moved slighty and it tightens on the adapter and its got leverage and mass. A small dose of WD40 would also help.

Greg.
