So, any idea if there's someone on the right hand side of the pond that sells suitable good quality wooden legs for the Vixen Porta mount?

I recently put a PortaMount II head on a CG-5 tripod that I had, and that did make it a lot more stable. (The CG-5 tripod has a removable azimuth post that would otherwise prevent the Porta head from going on.) The original Porta Mount was not designed to be placed on another tripod, so people who want more stability for the original model have tended to change just the legs. The Porta Mount II is almost identical to the original except that it is also designed so you can easily remove the entire head and put it on a large number of tripods.
