Hi all;

I am updating info on the plates/cages.

2 lb = .91k (new weight)
6.5 lb = 2.95k
11 lb = 5k
15 lb = 6.82k

Rod lengths;

7 in. = 17.8 cm
8.5 in = 21.6 cm
9.5 in = 24.1 cm (new length)

Plate dimensions;

13.25 in. = 33.8 cm
5 in wide = 12.8 cm
1/2 in deep = 1 cm (2 lb and 6.5 plates)

I supply camera tie down screws for all plates when you buy them.

Any 2 plates and any four rods is $385. Shipping US Priority mail when avail for roughly $50 or less in the US and Canada.

What's the price for just a set of 9.5" rods?

I have one of these cages and it is great. Very good quality. 11 and 6.5 makes a great combo. The focus rod holes are also great.

Hi all;

Any extra set of rods is $65.00 for four. $70 total, shipped in the US and Canada.

Also, I can ship Weight cages/plates to the rest of the world and they charges vary but roughly under $100. (I can give exact numbers when I know where its going of course.)

Lastly, a single plate purchase is $210. Shipping on that is roughly $25.00 in the US and Canada.

Thanks to Rich and Kevin for the cudos, I appreciate it.

(One story, I bought a cage from Mike O'Shea about 15 years ago thinking it was a necessary evil to buy a hunk of metal. I have used that thing 200 times over the years, it always amazing to me that it was so useful. That's probably why I was so happy to take over making them; they are simple but brilliant. thanks Mike.)

Now jib and sticks operators use them with DSLRs as a way to place the camera where you want and to have space for the accessories those cameras need.

I'll have a follow focus rod that fits on the verticals of the cage (very handy) in a month or so. My machine shop is backed up with other things. I'll get a drawing to show soon.

Thanks again.

JA
