Yesterday was quite a day. I know a LOT of you are trying to picture how the installation and operation of the non-duckbill magazine is accomplished. Well, I was a bit familiar with it but yesterday I learned just about all there is to know about it, and then demonstrated how to do it.
Marcus and I made FOUR videos during the course of the afternoon. Since the adapter system functioned flawlessly the only delays were from my ineptitude when making the demonstrations. Rather than try to explain what the day entailed I think it's easiest for interested parties to just view the videos. Hopefully they are pretty clear, although details are somewhat lacking as our cameras won't zoom while filming. It's pretty clear that we aren't professionals, heck, we're not even talented amateurs when it comes to movies, but we did our best.TURN YOUR SPEAKER VOLUME DOWN FOR THE FIRST TWO VIDEOS

The website is still a rough work in progress but there is quite a bit of information there already. http://www.thesksmagadapter.com/
