I had read from an earlier post about the 30 mm filter lens from Best Buy fitting a 1/4 in hole.  Did I buy he wrong size because it's too small for the hole.  There were 37 mm, 40 mm and 47 mm.  My question is which size filters fit the 1/4 inch hole?  Thanks

 For the 30mm filters,an 1 1/4 hole saw is almost perfect.I just run my dremmel tool with a sanding drum on it,around the inside of the hole a few times.But you should still have a nice tight fit.A couple drops of super glue to anchor it,let it dry,then silicone.They work great,we can all thank STICKBOW for this great idea.

I don't know why it didn't work.  I took them back and bought the 37 mm and then used my dremmel tool to sand of the edges and it worked fine.  A pretty snug fit.  The 30 mm filters just fell through the hole.  I know i bought a Craftsman 1 1/4 in hole saw, so I don't know what happened.  Thanks again.
