EQ-6 base plate dimensions or template ? new
      #6325538 - 01/21/14 05:00 AM

Hi,

I'm about to order the making of an EQ-6 mount head adapter for a new pier.

Would someone have precise dimensions of holes, base diameter, etc. and/or a drawing template ?


I'm especially interested in the exact base diameter of actual mount head base.
