Hi, Can anyone advise where I may get spare parts for my LEE 105mm Polarisor, I just need the metal casing. I have searced online but when you put in the filter it comes up with everything from hoovers to car spares.
I contacted LEE UK but as yet not received a reply so I am just looking ahead incase they cannot help me.
Many Thanks
Russ

Hi, The circular caring that holds the glass so you can rotate the filter, this came apart when I droped the filter and got damaged on the inside where the two parts meet so the filter will now not rotate.

Phone LEE, ask for their marketing guy (whose name escapes me) and tell him your tale of woe. Ask him for a new ring (filter ring - they make filters, not body parts) and promise and deliver on some nice feedback on here when you get it....they really are very nice people to deal with.

Hi, Contacted LEE. Reply was:-We do not have a repair service for this product as we do not make them - we have them made for us, to our spec, but getting hold of a new replacement mount may be tricky.
However, we do get returns from time to time with marked or damaged glass, and I would be happy to send you the mount from one of these when one shows up.
The gent that replied is doing a photo workshop in Glencoe, Scotland so will be middle next week when he gets back.Smile

Thanks Also for your reply
Russ
