Hello,
Anyone know where I can buy a counterweight shaft for the WO EZ-Touch Mount? Nothing at their website :confused:

I had one from a cheap eq1 mount- it fits perfect.

It takes a 12mm metric bolt. I found that an M12x70mm bolt with a couple of brass bushings did a fine job holding a Meade 10 lbs counter-weight (for LXD75) to the head.
