Tripods with 4 legs?

Tripods with 4 legs?

Postby Mr.Marx » Thu Sep 30, 2010 9:07 pm

Hey

I was just wondering if the 4 Legged tripod (with the black smoke discarger) body (or just arms) would be avalable with as a 3 legged triopod.
or failing that is it possible to convert one into the other as the things stand?

cheers

It should be pretty easy to convert it from 4 legs to 3 - just drill a hole in the lower rear of the body and stick one of the legs in there. If you want to be really neat then you could file off the two rear mounting points.

To be fair, it is actually called a "Quadruped Walker" on the website !

It is of course well known that neither Kentish Men or Men of Kent can count above 3!

Haha! Yes. Quadriped.

I'll have a go at some converting when ever I next make an order. Should be soon I hope.

Ah, Maidstone! I should have noticed. Good old Kent.
