Baier TLR adapters

I recently acquired a nice Rollei 3.5 F. As much as I like the camera I find (as a glasses wearer) focusing in bright sunlight challenging whether using the WLF with or without the magnifier.
Looking for a solution I came across these:

I did see previous posts regarding Baier adapters but was wondering if anyone here still knows which Hasselblad chimneys they work with?
Thanks in advance for any information you may offer.

Paul

FYI, I just received a reply from Rolf at Baierfoto and he assures me the his adapters work with the Hasselblad chimneys.

Yes, they work with the Hasselblad or Kiev finders. I use one of the older Hasselblad 45 degree prisms and it works great. Basically, it is just a spacer machined correctly.

Maybe as an alternative: i have a horizontal split screen in my 2.8f and though the groundglass is a little dim (at least dimmer than on a mamiya c220f or a new hassy screen) due to the split screen its the fastest waist level finder to focus for me.

My thought on the bayer+hasselblad prism: All Hasselblad/Kiev prism have larger or smaller prolongations backwards, which unbalance the rolleiflexes a bit. Could be unconfortable over time.

schöne Grüße,
Johann
