New shoe for the flash

Hot shoe on Polaroid got its own standard, meaning your modern flash doesn't fit on its size.

Mr.Noah got a pair of surgeon's hands, converted it into a wonderful hot shoe, fit for most modern flashes, I really want do the same, but I am not able to.

So maybe a cold shoe will fit my skill and my needs, after all, a flash cord can make a cold shoe into a hot one.

What I really need to do is to find a cold shoe, take it down, and screw onto a custom size plate, and put them into the place where belong.

Now I can put flash, viewfinder, or maybe a meter on the body.

Maybe you could make the adapter block from a plastic like delrin. It wouldn't take much to make it a hot shoe then.
Your work is very impressive.
