    Has anyone gotten one of these tripods yet? I'm wondering what they are like.

    It is Model NAT 81, and is listed as 11lbs on this website, but shipped at a lighter weight, who knows... http://www.tooldudes.com/northwest-tripods_specs.html sells for $112, got mine for under $30.

    I've gotten back into the surveyor tripod game and upon following Brian's link the seller is now selling Aluminum surveyor tripods with a buy it now price of $30 with $10 shipping. How do the aluminums stack up against the woods? I have emailed the seller about the brand name and model number.

    The ones listed earlier were also aluminum. One of my friends has been having trouble getting delivery of his tripod from this guy. I had no problems myself. Just FYI.

    What are the suggestions to convert it to the normal photo mount? Is aggie's suggestions the best and quickest: Adaptor Screw...5/8 11 to 1/4 20 at Master Wholesale $4.78

    I'm not using a majestic, but will soon be moving to a bogen 3047 (and if anyone has one for sale...)

    The nount that comes with the tripod is very flimsy. I am in the process of having someone machine and adapter plate for me. Majestic heads go for as little as $25 on ebay right now.

    wow, really?!? I guess I'll just need to check ebay every once in a while so that I can grab one. I will actually be cheaper than the 3047.
    Thanks for the tip, Brian
