I just registered as a member here and this is the first post I write, hopefully in the right forum.
I work in a rental company and I'm now the responsable for our Steadicam.
Today I saw something on the arm to our Steadiecam MK-V. It's a 3A-arm, and there are some steel wires coming out between the metals, it looks like it's coming from the spring inside.
I attach a picture.
My question is, what should I do about it? Will it affect the operating of the Steadicam? Is it dangerous somehow?
Should I send it for maintainence (where?) or is it something I can do by myself?
I have a very basic knowledge of Steadicams, I'm a camera technician, not a operator, so please feel free to explain it to me as if I were a baby.
Thank you in advance,
