I recently found an Edmunds eq. mount head in a trash bin. It is a modest size, with 5/8" diam. axles. It is in VG shape and I am going to refurbish it. It has the original setting circles and counterweight but lacks a clock drive and the pier.

Would anyone know where I could find an original pier?
It takes a 3" size pipe pier.

Thanks,
Rob

Might have to fabricate one. My Edmunds mount is on a 4" pier. I am not sure what the pipe thread pitch is. Should not be too hard to do.

I've got a pier for the F/8 6" Edmunds.

Pete,
Would it fit my mount, for 3" pipe?
Are you willing to sell it?

Rob
