p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Elinchrom beauty dish replacement mounting ring


Hi all!

Long time no speak. I have a problem where the mounting ring on my beauty dish has been bent and needs replacing. There is no spare part available from Elinchrom. There are many mounting/adapter rings available in the repair centre but don't look like they will fit so well due to their size.

Has anyone had any experience with this and found a solution?

Kind regards,

Conradicus

If you can take off the speedring, I'm sure you can get an affordable
after market speedring on ebay to replace it.

If you drill out the rivets holding the existing ring in you should be able to use just about any aftermarket speedring. I have an extra Photoflex ring and it matches up with mine as far as hole size and depth. You cold then drill the ring's edge and secure ti with a few short 8/32 screws and nuts.

Thanks for the replies!

The problem is now solved. Several of the speedrings were a little large and wouldn't fit cleanly in to the dish without cutting them down in size.

A speedring from a similar reflector was found and attachment.

I'm happy again. :-)

Kind regards,
