    Need the help of a machinist...

    I just got a Majestic head to use with my Calumet Green Monster. I have a Davis & Sanford Model C tripod which the head fits just fine, but I'd like to be able to use it on my Bogen 3036 as well. There are a couple of adapters out there (B&H will special order them) that will allow the slip on head to be used on my 3036, but I'm not crazy about the way they are made.

    While I can handle woodwork and most sheet metal work, this one is beyond my current tool set. What I'd like is a single piece of steel machined as to the picture I've attached to this posting.

    If you can help. please PM me with an estimate of the cost.

    Thanks!

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Just read the post. Easy part to make. I have a metal lathe with a milling attachment, and have made quite a few parts and adapters for photographer friends. Maybe I can help someone next time...

    Can you guys with lathes cut 25tpi?

    I don't have a job for you but many years ago I was asked to make adaptors for lens cells into a shutter, 25tpi.........couldn't do it and never seen a lathe that had that pitch on it.

    Are you trying to put B&J boards on a Sinar or the other way around? Lensboards and adapters are usually a piece of cake. I just came in from the shop where I was working on making an adapter to let me use the 4.5" square boards on my Toyo monorail.
