I use sugru to make my side to side adjustment on my steadicam flyer top stage easier to turn.

Anyone else have any sugru steadicam hacks? I bet there are a few tweaks

Sugru is like silly putty that hardens, https://sugru.com/

They were well hidden. got that now, Thanks James. . I can cut off the sugru anytime, however I like the sensitive torque it seems to add and that I can confirm it is side to side vs front to back with its distinctive handle.

That's what I need to fix my tea kettle! Might be nice also for the gimbal handle, maybe.
