You should check out these.
The Optical Supports is the one I am waiting on. The guy who runs the shop says he is doing another production run within the next couple of weeks, so the wait should only be maybe ~4-5weeks. and it is a great product. If you order one he will definitely get the process going soon. he is still going to build mine if no-one else orders one, but if someone else does order one, it takes the pressure off him having to buy all the stock for only one person's order...
(I can sympathize with him being a very small business needing to put out money for only a small return at a time..)
Not trying to make you buy that one so I can get mine quicker..LOL
I went with this one so that I can leave the one piece on the mount, and then bolt it to the other.meaning the PA should be nearly perfectly aligned with the previous mounting every time you use it..
So if you spend one night getting your PA setup VERY well..every time you go out after, you should be able to line it up so it is exactly where it was last time.make sense..

Your post and a chance for me to see a CGEM up close clarify this part for me. If you get a chance and could PM me the measurements it would be appreciated.

Thanks so much. I have been looking for a method to attach a CGEM to my old and stable CGE tripod. The fact I can reverse the bottom plate helps a lot.
