Doh! I've searched page after page on the internet for one and they just don't seem to exist any more. Looks like i'm going to have to be creative and make an alternative...

Didn't Michael Wilkinson remove his? or was that a 60mm?

Sorry to bump this Mark, but easier to ask here than elsewhere.
I have an SM40 adapter plate that does not fit the Tmax thread.
Could you confirm the thread specs for either end of the SM40 Tmax tuner ?
I am presuming you made ( or had made ) an alternative tilting mechanism.
Best wishes,
David
