Rangefinder size comparisons

I was wondering a few things about the rangefinder. I am in the process of making a light kit and was curious about the most popular models of the RF. I know Asok sells them with his CC helms(which are awesome by the way), and terminal fettler makes them ,as well as the don post pieces are the ones I read about he most.
My question is mainly about the size difference between them all. My kit was build to fit Asok's lid and I am wondering how much I will have to alter the design to get it to fit in the other RFs if I decide to make them.
Thanks,
JC

I have a TF rangefinder kit on the way. If nobody else provides measurements
before it gets here, I'll be glad to provide them once I receive it.

Hi JC,
I got my Terminalfettler RF, and I took a couple of measurements.
These are measurements of the space inside the RF:
Width (front to back): 30 mm
Height: 18 mm

Keep in mind, those are the absolute limits of the space available
inside the RF. If a board was built to those dimensions, it would be
a very tight scrape getting it in there.
Hope that helps!

Thanks that will help. If you could take a pic of the inside that would be awesome. I need to check my circuit to see the dimensions but it should fit.

Heres a comparison between the TF Topper and a RS Props Topper which is similar to ASOK's size. I can't stress how nice the TF's toppers are. I've had them all in hand at one time or another but the TF really stuck out as the most accurate of them all in my honest opinion and his block and lens are very clear and clean. Sorry I wondered off topic there. But I hope these comparison pictures help you out.

I agree! It's hard to beat terminal fettler's awesome rangefinders! I have the viewfinder and the perspex block from him and I can't praise enough the excellent craftsmanship and care for details!

Hi, excuse me for butting in. My RF tops are £40 (GBP) shipped. I have a batch ready to ship, 5-7 days delivery time to your door. Also, because the lens Perspex section is hand cut and finished, I can supply this part to you specification to fit another housing. Please feel free to PM me, or ask any questions here...(y)
