Re: My Panoramic Head design (with pics)
How do you guarantee alignment between the horizontal & vertical arms? Seems like an alignment slot/tab would be helpful, but then you're moving from DIY territory into machining.
Are you using the panning base on the ballhead or do you have a separate panning head?
Finally, a shout out to McMaster-Carr. Best website ever for finding "I-don't-know-quite-what-I'm-looking-for".
