    Until then I shall keep my eyes peeled for a good used one!
    Thanks all!!
    Petersen had a series in the '70's that included the issue you're looking for. I think there were eight volumes to the set. Sports, figure, pj, etc. Usually see them at used bookstores or photo fles markets.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    The camera stand described in the Petersen's book is a wooden single column design, somewhat similar to modern metal stands. Someone with good engineering and woodworking skills could probably do better. If one is going to use wood, the ancient two-column design might be more practical. The book is available online at low price from http://www.abebooks.com/ and undoubtedly many other online booksellers.

    Fotch,

    You're very fortunate... I tried dealing with them on a stand several years ago and became so frustrated with the process that I promised myself I'd NEVER even consider contacting them again!

    Giant pita!

    But, I'm glad things worked out for you!

    Cheers
