Quote:Hi Leo, I do plan to replace the chain with something stronger.
Quote:Hi Jon,It's a 90mm f/7 (SVR90T), probably about 8 pounds with rings/dovetail. I expressed myself poorly; what I meant is that the current chain looks weak, and I intend to put a stronger chain on it if I can find something suitable.I agree that chains may be sufficient, and should be plenty for preventing the legs from slipping. I wasn't sure, though, if the chains alone would keep the assembly rigid enough.
