    Two more stands. It's Christmas and the elves have been busy.

    Sister and gf get 'em.





    Incorporated the eyebolts, dogbones and tee nuts in these two.

    That looks great! It's looking like it will be difficult to improve on this design...

    Just got back from the hardware store with materials to build a stand! This is a "big" deal for me because I don't have any trees in my yard... Hopefully will be able to finish it soon, and I'll post pictures when finished.

    The side legs of the tripod can't be cranked completely tight because they have to pivot, so I had been using lock washers or lock nuts but it's still kind of iffy because they have to stay loose to a point.

    On this recent pair of I remembered the miracle that is Loctite.

    I know. They're great, but for this build I was trying the tee nuts and I did have Loctite...

    Wow, nice presents. What total length are your tripod legs, and do you know what angle you are cutting the ends at? I could probably figure it out, but I would love to have your layout technique....it looks perfect.

    Doogie I outlined how I do these in this post.

    Some like a wider stance on the tripods but this method works for me. I've made the legs between 6' and 6'6" or so and for indoor stands I put rubber feet on them. See my gallery for more pictures.

    Cheers,

    Thanks so much for this. Merry Christmas.

    BTW, your avatar photo always reminds me of "Un Chien Andalou" from my Art of Film class ...... a little disturbing.
