 Here is a quick and easy project you can make in about an hour or two...maybe less! Best of all, most of these materials are easily found around the house or garage waiting to be reused!

  I made this tri-pod for our digital camera and I'll show you how to make your own in several easy steps...and seeing how most disposable razors have pivoting heads this means your "razor tri-pod" will have adjustable legs for un-even surfaces or adjusting camera angles.

 This instructable is entered in the "Reuse Contest" & the "Photography Contest"....vote if you enjoyed.  :)

PLEASE NOTE: This tri-pod is suited for small, pocket sized digital cameras. I wouldn't use this mini tri-pod for large expensive SLR cameras!


 
SO LET'S GET STARTED...

Basic Materials :

* 3 Disposable Razors - Rubber type handles work best as they grip surfaces better (New or Used it doesn't matter)

* Gorilla Glue & Hot Glue (or other adhesive of your preference)

* 1/4" Bolt that is about 1 /12" long

* Small scrap piece of 1/2" wood (I used a scrap piece of plywood)

* Various washers and spacers I had in a junk box for area between camera and wooden base

Tools :

* Power Drill with 1/4 wood drill bit & 1/2" Bore Bit (someone correct me if this is not the proper name and I will fix it)

* Jig saw with wood cutting blade

Ok, go ahead and get all your materials ready....

Looks good!
Those would look good, and be functional on a hexapod....
Hmmm... how about putting a few servos and some control in there and... you have an RC or autonomous camera stand!

Nice job jawasan.

Cool idea techhobbit....but servos and stuff...? YIKES!! Beyond my skills, I have yet to get into the electronic side of things yet. One day though!!

Thanks. Now I just have to figure out something for all these nifty "vibrating razor" Gillette handles I have accumilated. I've never been crazy about shaving with something that vibrates!!! lol
Vibrating fighting robots!!

Vibrotripod! Imagine the pictures you get with a autonomous moving tripod, like a bristlebot. Did you try to make a tripod out of vibrating razors?
jawasan (author)  ynze2 years ago
I thought about it! haha
...but I couldn't really find the reasons for a vibrating tri-pod...I suppose for fun. :D

Remember "action painting" in the 1960's? Maybe you'll open a new era of "action photography": mount a camera on a vibrotripd, set shuttertime to 2 secs or so and go :-)
