hi all, and apologies for very late response, i've been quite unwell with the lurgy
its an old BILORA tripod with tubular legs and twist to tighten to secure a particular position.
it has a gitzo head, with a cork "mat"
the "tilt" part of the head tightening mechanism is now a screwdriver that's had
a bolt welded onto it. although it looks a bit messy, it works just fine.
its a weighty bugger !!!
although my heart says i want to keep hold of it, my head says i wont be using it,
so would like it to go to a home where it'll be used as "him up there" intended
rather than turned into a profit centre by adding a fancy shade and a bulb (which i saw
today in a window in a private home in chelmsford).
i am in chelmsford, and would suggest it'd be good to collect due to its weight.
again apologies for the long delay, but i've been seriously not good with the lurgy
all the best, al
