DIY Wheels for the Losmandy HD Tripod
      #5630923 - 01/19/13 12:54 AM

I posted about this on the ATM/DIY forum, but figured it might be useful here, too. I just finished making some wheels for my G-11. I looked at the ScopeRoller website, and used thier product to figure out what needed doing.

You can see what I did here.

It was not that hard, and cost less than $50, $16 of which was for having the casters shipped to me. If you could find some locally, all the better.

Looks good. Straight forward and simple to do, but effective. Polish it up a bit, make it look slightly more professional and sell it online.

Thanks, Hilmi!

I don't have the time to do such a thing, and what ScopeRoller does must be very close. I think, for the work involved, their price is pretty reasonable.
