Bolt size to attach Rob Miller tripod to levelers new
      #5923255 - 06/16/13 05:33 AM

Hi all,

I have the Rob Miller tripod Tri36L and the regular levellers (the one on the left).



I was wondering if anyone knows the exact bolt size to attach the levellers to the tripod legs? There are 4 for each of the three levellers.

Thanks!

OK, so how did you manage to get the levelers without the bolts to attach them?

Bottom line is that you have 4 perfectly good bolts to figure it out with screwed into the bottom of each footpad in the TRI36L. Take one out, figure out what it is (probably 10-32) and add 1/4 inch to the length.

Yep, that's it, 10-32 x 3/4". Both sets of levelers were supplied with and installed with a 1/16" thick washer on each bolt in that pic. If you can get 10-32 x 5/8" without a washer they would probably be really close to perfect.

Thanks. I had taken the bolts out and lost them all. Now I want to reattach everything. I will try the size you suggested. Thanks very much!
