I had been looking for a good (and cheap) solution for me and my Zephyr to be able to use
light cameras (DSLR's) in terms of weight. If I would be living in the states I probably would have
tried to get one of those weight plates Janice makes, but I am in Germany, had some time and
wanted to try something myself. I had myself a custom weight plate made and wanted to share
the design with you...no need for everybody to get all the info all over again.
So here are two photos of how the plate turned out (It is steel, burnished, that's where the dark color
comes from) and a drawing I made. The *.dwg can be opened and edited with the freeware "DraftSight"
(rename the file "Weight_Plate_v6.pdf" to "Weight_Plate_v6.dwg", I was not able to upload this
file type here)
