Way off topic,
but we have a knowledgeable bunch here.
I was wondering if anyone know if any other companies make a:
"Universal Mitchell / Castle nut wrench"
here a a link to one company which has mixed reviews:
As some of you know, I work a bunch of conventional camera on broadcast sports...
In recent years, it seems the machining tolerances of the Vinten Pan Heads [which are the typical pan head brand found on the broadcast mobile units] do not always match the tolerances of the various tripods on these broadcast truck.
Some camera guys resort to taking a hammer and a screwdriver to attempt to get the Mitchell "Castle" nut tighter. While that works, I have seen some get of those Nuts get their fins broken off...
So I can see why this tool could be useful.
Anyone ever use one?
and does anyone else make them?
any input is appreciated.
