Step 1: Start With Finding Material
Well, boring and hard work.
Step 2: Grinding
Step 3: First Look
Here are parts..it shall be two heads on end. Plexy parts was glued with a blur made when you put the Plexy sawdust in the chloroform. Very good glue.
Some ideas how it shall work after finishing.
Step 4: Assembled
Step 5: Mounted on My Stativ
Step 6: It Has to Be Stronger...
I found that for heavier cameras and lenses you need to take stronger Plexy, The third was made from 45mm x 9mm strips.
Step 7: Reinforcements
So I go back, and add - glue a layer of 4mm on previous model on vertical and horizontal part. Because I have not the same material I take this layer in different color. To be nicer ...
Now it is ready for heavier cameras...
Step 8: Test ...
Costs? Few cents. Two hour work. :)))
Or go to web /Ebay... there are plenty of kind...
