Hi there, folks. My frankenstein sled uses the monitor yoke from an Tiffen/Steadicam Archer 1 and I'm looking pretty hard at a Cinetronic II. Cinetronic says they know of "some operators mounting [their] monitors on Archer sleds" but I don't know if that's Archer 1, 2 or if they were having yokes custom machined.

I'd obviously prefer as little downtime as possible and I'd rather not go the custom machining route if I can avoid it. So if there's anybody out there that actually put a Cinetronic in an Archer yoke, I'd love to hear the details. Thanks a lot!

Well no one has put a Cinetronic 2 up on a rig yet. Having said that if you can mount a monitor with a pro spigot you can mount a Cinetronic

That's the trick, I don't believe a Pro Spigot would work on my rig - while the guts are all Pro, the rest of it is either tiffen or custom fabricated. The original Archer 1 yoke mounts onto a block attached to the end of two rails, so it's looking like either the monitor (if I'm lucky) would fit into the existing yoke, or it's off to a machine shop.

Hey Kurt.
I had the same issue with my Clipper 3, and had to make my own.Mounting Cinetronic on Clipper
But when I get my new Gen II Cinetronic, I'll get a yoke, that Curt from Artemis/Sachtler will make.That fit's the Clipper's post. Hope that helps?

Hi Kurt

We are in the process of making a telescoping post bracket that will fit the Gen 1 or Gen 2 Cinetronic monitor yoke (all you have to do is tell us what post size when ordering). It will be available for purchase when we start shipping the Gen 2 monitor very soon.
