Tripod Thread Sizes List of various sizes of tripod threads for reference only.

Please note: That there are no parts available for a few of the tripods listed that need work or parts.

All Items are used except those noted otherwise.

For all Tripods and Parts there are NO REFUNDS after the sale so
please make sure this is something that you want and be very sure
the thread size is correct for your instrument prior to purchasing.
ALL TRIPOD SALES ARE FINAL............... No refunds allowed.

I'm very sorry UPS shipping costs have recently nearly doubled or more.
Although there are other shipping methods at leaser cost. I have had
considerable losses with FedEx and the US Postal Service so I will not
ship with them. The cost of shipping a tripod will be nearly $70.00 or
possibly more.

ALL TRIPOD and PART SALES ARE FINAL............... No refunds allowed.

. Please note: I have several differently threaded tripod heads. If you need a thread size
. other than what is listed here please let me know. It may be possible to change thread sizes
. on some of these tripods. I will be pleased to check and let you know.
