Picture of Third Hand of the Tripod

(I apologize in advance for the text translated Google).

By mistake, I bought all the famous tripod spider in an amount as three parts. Not only bought because of the law of meanness they were with a bunch of marriage in many joints were cracked, resulting in virtually no stiffness in the joints. I had to think about where they can apply to use. "Third hand" I have not and would like to get it, so I decided to try to assemble it using the same support, not to throw the same))) Here's what happened:

This is actually something that happened as a result:

It was made all homemade and the remains after repair. Database size 200x200mm selected exists on the basis of a piece of floor tiles.

Step 1: Cutting of Material.

Cut the required length of the stud.

As the pen found at the lamb from the lamp from Ikea, went well, it is doubled on both sides with additional nuts.

Step 12:
