Where to find parts for building telescopic articulating arm?
I am not exactly sure where to ask this. I have about a 3-4 foot articulating camera arm, which I use for a completely different purpose (medical related). It is great at what it does, except it is very difficult to precisely adjust it. I have not seen anything that will do exactly what I need, but it would look somewhat similar to that type of articulating arm. It would need to have two telescopic sections plus one or two articulating joints. I think I would need to find each of those sections separately and then put them together myself, because I have not seen arm with that precise configuration of sections, and that is as lightweight as what I need. Where should I look for such kinds of parts?
