Hi folks,
I need to lay hands on two items. I'm helping someone in the Live T.V. world check out a Steadicam and need to use the parts to properly show the rig.

1. A set of tri ax to co ax adaptors and the coax that runs in between them.
2. If anyone HAS, a genuine very thin flexible TriAx cable. CP used to sell it,then Tiffen did till the custom-pulled spool ran out then.
It was a silicone-sheathed cable.

Please email me if you've got some of this stuff on hand. Will pay FedEx both ways of course. I need it in hand by Jan 4, and will send it out Jan 5 back to you.

Many thanks in advance,

Peter

Hi

If you don't manage to find the old CP one, you might want to try through your Tiffen Europe branch.

I believe they sell through the ones made up by Mike Scott in the UK. I believe he keeps the fisher and lemo triax in stock.

If the client wants to buy a rig then they could also buy the cable if needed through Mike/Tiffen Europe.

Though not the same cable they are still very very good.

Hey guys,
Thank you one and all for the help. I've got both a TriAx to CoAx turnaround kit coming and a light thin true TriAx coming.

I knew that the community would offer up help. :) John, have a blast in there. I turned down the offers through the years to do the ABC show every New Year's Eve. Now of course I wish I'd done at least one.

Best,

Peter

( Now, the fun part- making live t.v. next week for a day !!! )
