Quote:Quote:how about JB WELDING wingnuts onto the studs? I like that. You could also use a 'jam nut' or high strength Loctite.
Quote:ADM makes some nice knobs, and can do the blue anodizing. They sell some "off the shelf" for tripods:http://www.admaccessories.com/Miscellaneous_Tripod_Knob_Set.htm?But, you should email him with what details on what you're looking for. He does custom work and might be able to make some up for you. Not sure whether the cost will be reasonable or not, but it's worth asking. I guess it depends on how important that pretty blue anodizing is to you. -Dan
