    Hardware for a tripod thread

    Hi,

    I would like to mount a tripod thread onto the side of my Korona 7x17 camera so that I can stabilize it while I am shooting vertically. I was wondering if anyone know where to get the hardware for it.

    Thank you for your input.

    Warmly.

    Most hardware stores carry both brass and stainless steel inserts in various threads that can be mounted in the camera..pretty common item, I keep a bunch around all the time for making or fixing things when needed.

    Dave,

    Thanks for your info. Do you happen to know one online? I do not seem to be able to find a good local hardware store other than Homedepot or Lowe's...

    Warmly,

    You might check Ace Hardware, that is where I buy them, also you might do an online google for threaded inserts, should be able to find something that way.

    At the top of this very page displaying the thread is an ad for SK Grimes. Isn't that precisely what they do?
    If you tone it down alot, it almost becomes bearable.

    I am sure they could get you one, but their main business is shutters, not tripod threads. Hence I am sure the cost would be prohibitive.

    Look in the hardware section of your Lowes or Home Depot for a 1/4" X 20 blind nut (aka T-nut).

    I have a good need for a few of these - and 3/8" too, and the 1/4" inside - 3/8" outside converters. But all I can find on Europe is metric...

    So does HAMA - at a third of the price, but what I meant is that I can't go into a hardware shop and pick up a dozen 3/8" bolts/bushings/nuts or whatever.
