Guest from Cypress, CA Posted January 4, 2008
I got ambitious one day and bought three sets of the cane connectors to make a camera support that would knock down to fit into my backpack so I could easily carry it on a trip to Europe and the Middle East. I first made it from cocobolo and cherry, but found the cherry was too weak, so I switched it out for hickory. (It worked great, saved quite a few photos from blurring. The trip was awesome too!) I found it necessary to experiment a little with the size of the pilot hole for the screw fitting - too small and the wood splits, too large and you may lose some strength. Either way, count on using epoxy to lock the fittings into the wood, especially the brass floor tip, which fits onto a tennon. Not wanting to risk marking the floor if I used the stick indoors, I also epoxied a small disk of leather to the tip. For the top end, I fitted a 3/8" 16tpi hanger bolt, which threads into the ballhead from my tripod and my camera mounts to that. The bolt gets covered by the brass ball handle when not in use, which screws on easily once a little paraffin wax is applied. If a slender stick is required, the brass turns easily with high speed steel turning tools.All in all, I am very pleased with this hardware kit. I've already bought the hardare to make a second stick, as my friends have expressed a great deal of interest in my first one.

Before I ordered I shopped the product and made a purchase from two sellers. Your product was the same price as the other seller but it included a tip. As I use up these parts making canes I will replacing the order from you because you both sold the product at the same price and I received your product several days ahead of the other vendor. Thanks for the fast/good service with a excellent product.
