In section D) you mounted the hardware to hold the Hama viewer to the drill case.  Now we will attach it to the Hama viewer. 

Remove the screws from the 1/8" jack and disassemble.

Drill a hole in the top part of the Hama viewer right next to the 2 ridges inside the viewer piece

Insert the plug

Plug faces the direction shown

Mark the small holes for set screws

Drill out holes and screw in the jack


Plug the viewer into the drill case

OPTIONAL:  You can also make a cover for the plug by routing out the existing plastic piece.  Drill a center hole for the plug

Route the inside and the screw posts

Cut the piece so you have a small top part left

File and sand at an angle

Place this onto the jack

Finished.  Note in this setup the jack is slightly angled inward towards the bottom of the viewer.

Plug the viewer back in and make sure the socket accepts the plug
